A small web-based application that allows website owners to easily manager their websites

editor's review




webon is an open source, freely distributed and platform-independent software project that has been designed from the offset to help website administrators and website owners to manage their websites.

It’s briefly described by its developers as a website managing project, and it will allows you to easily and quickly create and maintain web pages on your website with minimum effort and in a shortest time as possible.

Installing webon

To install the webon application on your system or web server, you will have to first create the webon database. Then, you must copy the installation files from the tarball into your web server’s public_html directory by using the INSTALL shell script.

Furthermore, users must copy all of the webon files to the root of their web server and create the required database tables by using the http://your_web_server/webon/admin/create_table.php script. That’s it! From here, you can access the webon’s administration interface (public_html/webon/admin) and edit stuff.

Under the hood

webon is written entirely in the PHP server-side scripting language. It’s a web application that requires a reliable and stable web server, as well as the PHP5 programming language and the PostgreSQL database server.


The webon software is available for download as a universal sources archive in the tar.gz format, which must be extracted on your path. It includes all the files required for the installation (see the above section for details). A version of webon with support for the JavaScript languge is also available for download on the project’s homepage.

Supported operating systems and platforms

Being written in PHP and designed from the ground up to be deployed on top of a web server, such as Apache or nginx, the webon application will mainly run under a GNU/Linux operating system. It has been successfully tested under both 32-bit and 64-bit instruction set architectures.
