PortaBilling100 Installation Guide for Maintenance Release 16, a document that provides a general overview of the PortaBilling100 installation process, is now available for download from our Documentation page.
PortaBilling100 can potentially run on most modern UNIX operating systems, assuming these are equipped with such basic items as an ANSI C compiler. However, it might be difficult for an inexperienced system administrator to install and configure the operating system in such a way as to meet all the requirements and provide the best performance.
Installing all the prerequisite software (libraries, Perl modules, MySQL server) might also be a time-consuming task, with a high risk of making some hard-to-trace error.
That is why the PortaBilling100 JumpStart installation CD provides a quick and seamless way to perform a complete server installation from scratch, in less than 15 minutes. It contains installation media for FreeBSD 6.3, with all the necessary packages and PortaBilling100 itself. The standardized installation procedure also simplifies further system maintenance.
