OpenACS (Open Architecture Community System) is a toolkit for building scalable, community-oriented web applications. OpenACS is the foundation for many products and websites, including the .LRN e-learning platform. OpenACS is open source and is available under the GNU General Public License.

Why use OpenACS?

OpenACS is unique in the breadth of services it offers developers and administrators. Millions of dollars and decades of developer time have gone into the maturation of OpenACS.

You can read the technical reasons to use OpenACS.

How do I install OpenACS?


The installation documentation contains all the necessary steps to install OpenACS on a large variety of systems. There is also a Windows Installer (detailed information) and a Debian Package. Additionally you can use our FreeBSD Port or follow the short instruction for Darwinport. Last but not least you can try out OpenACS using one of our Knoppix CDs that have been built for .LRN.

A full list of ports for OpenACS can be found on our OpenACS Installers section. Also Check the installation requirements before installing. The current stable release is OpenACS 5.2.3 (cvs aliases).

How do I work with OpenACS?


You can start by reading the documentation, specifically tips on customizing, the developer's tutorial, and
the FAQs. There is a OpenACS Wiki and a list of packages that extend OpenACS.

OpenACS 5.8.1 final released

We are proud to announce the release of OpenACS 5.8.1.
The new release differs from OpenACS 5.8.1 in the following points:
  • Compatibility of OpenACS core and 78 application packages with PostgreSQL 9.1+:
    The new version installs without any need for special parameter settings in all recent PostgreSQL versions.
  • Major cleanup: removal of calls to deprecated code, using recent Tcl byte compiled instructions rather than legacy constructs, following more closer to Postgres recommendations.
  • Functional improvements in core and application packages
  • Various performance and scalability improvements
  • Various bug fixes
  • The packages can be installed online from the OpenACS repository. The list of network-installable packages contains also DotLRN (for the full list of packages, see the full announcement).
  • Altogether, OpenACS 5.8.1 differs from OpenACS 5.7.1 in about 100,000 modifications (6145 commits) contributed by 5 committers.
Many thanks to all who helped in this effort via direct contributions, bug-reports or testing!

OpenACS for everyone

OpenACS (Open Architecture Community System) is:

  • an advanced toolkit for building scalable, community-oriented web applications.
  • a robust, scalable framework (see: en:openacs-system) for building dynamic content driven sites and enterprise-level web applications.
  • a collection of pre-built applications and services that you can build on to create a custom web-site or application.
  • derived from the ArsDigita Community System (ACS). ArsDigita (now part of Red Hat, Inc.) kindly made their work available under the GPL, making all of this possible.

Through a modular architecture, OpenACS has packages for user/groups management, content management, e-commerce, news, FAQs, calendar, forums, bug tracking, wiki (XoWiki ), full-text searching etc. See OpenACS repository.
