I'm looking for a good Opensoure Document management system mysql-php

Hi,

I've been looking for a good DMS running wth Mysql and PHP. I tested locally 3 tools : letoDMS, Owl Intranet Knowledgebase, maarch_entreprise and eZimDMS. Is there anyone who already use one of them?
Is there other Document management system that could be interesting?

Thx

We had a thread a while ago where some experts recommended the open source Alfresco:
http://www.alfresco.com/

I've personally never used it, but experts in that thread spoke highly of it. From the website you can see that there's an active support community for it. Don't know if it will work for you but it's worth a look. Also, here's an EE thread from last year that may be helpful in looking at Alfresco vs. SharePoint:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/MS-SharePoint/Q_25458146.html?sfQueryTermInfo=1+10+30+alfresco

Note that some of the data is a couple of years old, such as the accepted solution of:
http://www.cmswire.com/cms/enterprise-cms/sharepoint-vs-alfresco-a-platform-perspective-004549.php

So you'll want to look for updated info. Regards, Joe

One other point: Alfresco is making a big push into the cloud. You may see their doc here:
http://docs.alfresco.com/cloud/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.alfresco.cloud.doc%2Ftasks%2Flibrary-add-content-cloud.html

Some of the doc sections have helpful videos.

I've been playing around with Alfresco in the cloud (but never a local install) and so far it is performing very well, although I can't make any statements with respect to its usage in a production environment. Regards, Joe

Hi joewinograd,

Yes Alfresco seems to be to nice tool i would need, i will try to install the community version and play around with it, and let you know.

The free version in cloud seems to be limited in terms of storage.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

You're right – the free version in the cloud allows just 10GB of total storage and a max file size of just 50MB. There's a plan that can take you to 1TB of storage and a max file size of 2GB, but it's not free. And the on-premise version allows unlimited storage and unlimited file size (and an unlimited number of users), but it's also not free. In any case, I'm looking forward to hearing your feedback after you've played around with it. Regards, Joe

That's great news! The local install should make everything unlimited. Thanks for letting us know. Regards, Joe
