GLPI, short from Gestion Libre de Parc Informatique, is an open source, platform-independent and totally free web-based application implemented in PHP and JavaScript, and designed from the ground up to act as an information resource manager software that features an administration interface. It can be used to build databases with an inventory for your company (computers, printers, software, etc.).

Features at a glance

The application features enhanced functions that will make the daily life of any system administrator a lot more easier. Among some of its highlights, we can mention a job-tracking system with methods to build a database using basic information about your network topology, as well as email notifications.

With GLPI, your company will be able to create precise inventories of all the technical resources, storing all their information in databases. In addition, it can manage information in a way that no other application allows you, and it also handles bound procedures and tracks maintenance actions.

Getting started with GLPI

As mentioned, the JavaScript and PHP server-side programming/scripting languages have been used to create this useful and customizable information resource manager software. To install and use this web script on your server, all you have to do is to download the latest version from Softpedia or the official website (see link below), save the archive on your computer, extract its contents with your favorite archive manager and upload the files in the root of your web server or in a specific folder (in case you want to integrated with your existing website).

The application uses the powerful and flexible MySQL database server to store both its configuration and the data. So make sure that your web server has a MySQL server installed before attempting to install GLPI. Access the /install directory on your server to interact with the built-in installer script.
