Question about open sourceDocebo suite is Open Source and free. Its license is the GPL 2.0 (General Public License). With Docebo suite youll be able to: Download the software for FREE. Modify the code Using the suite as you want (also commercial use! So you can resell it, createcommercial courses,create commercial web sites, etc) You havent to give us money for our coding work!The only limitation is that you have to release your modified Docebo Suite with the same license (GPL). Now, well answer to some question about Open Source software: Can I sell courses using your E-Learning system? YES, you can! Im a coder. Can I sell to one of my Clients a modified version, or an installation of DoceboLMS? YES, you can! Can I use your CMS for my website, which is commercial? YES, you can for sure! Is it true that the courses I put on DoceboLMS become open source, because of the license of the LMS? NO, the didactic material can be protected by copyrights! I see a site that uses DoceboLMS, but its name is different. Is this legal? YES, but you havent to remove Docebo credits in the source code. We would like that the icon powered by would be visible but this is not mandatory. Can I transform the Docebo open source license in a closed source license? NO, you cant at all. Can Docebo change its license and oblige me to pay? NO, it cant at all. How can Docebo makes money if its software is free? Reading some market researches (Gartner Group 2003), only a 17% is the IT expense of a company to buy licenses. Docebo SRL sell consulting, learning object production and very powerful background services, that are much more important than licenses. In particular, Docebo offers: Software developing customizing Docebo suite Training, consulting and Audit in E-Learning, Content Management and Learning Management Web Hosting and Managed housing for our applications Help desk and manintenance services Reselling of SMS and Videoconference services Developing of didactical Learning Objects

Who is behind DoceboDocebo is a company focused on open-source software and integrated services for enterprises (Corporate Open Source). Users of the Docebo e-Learning platform are free to choose whether to install and autonomously manage the software or whether to outsource these activities to Docebo, exploiting the added value of having the software producer as a technological partner. The Docebo e-Learning platform is the open-source solution for e-Learning inside companies. Produced and developed by Docebo, it is distributed without any license cost, and it is one of the most internationally adopted open source platforms due to its reliability and ease of use. The added value of Corporate Open Source is the opportunity of profiting from the services, know-how and support offered by the company that developed the software. The advantage of open source is to eliminate license costs or other periodic fees. Once installed, the software is client's property forever. More info on www.docebo.com

Server configurationAs written "everywhere", the LMS works under several Operating Systems, but in order to use SCORM functions a specific configuration is required. Component versions: PHP 4.3.8 or higher (Note, from docebo 3.7 only php5 will be supported, in docebo 3.6 RestAPI module is available only for php5) MySQL 4.1 or higher Apache 1.3.x or 2.0.x or iis6 Server suggested configuration To use SCORM components you have to enable the domxml library (a PHP extension that you can activate from php.ini) For security reasons we suggest to set the php.ini configuration safe_mode to ON and the register_global to OFF (Note, if safe_mode is configured to ON you are forced to use the FTP upload function to transfer SCORM packages) File upload suggested configuration The filecourses folder and all subfolders have to be CHMODed to 777 (for windows system you need to have write permission for
