By installing a valid license for this ecoDMS version, you can turn the free version into a full version without having to reinstall it.
ecoDMS AllInOne-Installer: Use this installation file to execute all necessary base components in sequence within one installation.
The package includes the ecoDMS Server with postgreSQL database & container storage system, the ecoDMS Client including Inbox & Connection Manager and the PDF/A Printer from ecoDMS. If all ecoDMS components of the installation have been installed on a workstation, an ecoDMS profile will already exist in the Connection Manager for this workstation. Please refer to the chapter "Access Data" in the ecoDMS manual for the login credentials for the default profile.

With these three files you install the required basic components of ecoDMS.

ecoDMS Server:
As a client-server system, ecoDMS Server forms the base of the entire system. The postgreSQL database and containers for storing all data and information are also part of the server installation. The services available for the ecoDMS API REST service and web service (Web Client) are also contained in the server. The server is not a piece of hardware, but a software component. One installation of ecoDMS Server is installed on a central computer, a server hardware or an NAS.

ecoDMS Client:
Use this installation file to install the ecoDMS Archive user interface. Moreover, the Connection Manager and the Inbox are fixed components of this software package. The ecoDMS client can be installed on any number of other supported devices.

ecoDMS PDF/A Printer:
Use this file to install the ecoDMS virtual PDF/A printer (printer driver). It enables printing a PDF/A file from any application that prints. The virtual printer can be installed on any number of other supported devices.

We recommend the use of separator pages to scan documents in a batch process. This saves later manual document separation. Separator pages indicate to the system that a new document is about to begin. The system automatically splits the documents and reads them in individually. This PDF file is a print template for the separator page. ecoDMS recognises and automatically hides separator pages and empty pages if this function is not disabled in the programme. Print the two-page document (any number of copies) in two-sided mode so that the letter "T" is on both the front and on the reverse side of a DIN-A4 sheet (duplex method). Always insert a separator page at the end of a single or multi-page document and insert the next document behind it.

ecoDMS Server (Raspbian) ONLY Playground! 18.09-2/3 20-03-2020 DE+EN
ecoDMS is a client-server application composed of the ecoDMS Server, ecoDMS Client and the ecoDMS Printer. The Linux distributions of these components are installed via the console. Please note that the ecoDMS packages are available for 64-bit systems only for Ubuntu and Debian. Refer to the ecoDMS installation manual for a detailed step-by-step guide and "sources.list" entries. You cannot download the components directly from the ecoDMS website.

We provided the ecoDMS Server version for Raspberry Pi as a playground for tech-savvy ecoDMS users. However, we do not recommend productive use with large data volumes and/or in companies. The "remote access" function of the Raspbian Pi is not guaranteed due to limited performance. To best exploit the advantages of the archiving solution, we recommend you install the ecoDMS components on high-performing software with respective storage capacity. Please note that the ecoDMS packages for Raspberry PI are only available for a 32-bit system. Refer to the ecoDMS installation manual for a detailed step-by-step guide and "sources.list" entries. You cannot download the components directly from the ecoDMS website.

open_in_browser ecoDMS Server (Docker Abbild) 18.09-2/3 20-03-2020 DE+EN
The basic system elements are ecoDMS Server, ecoDMS Client including Inbox and Connection Manager, and the virtual PDF/A Printer. As an option, there are various additional components for email clients and Office applications. As a client-server system, ecoDMS Server forms the base of the entire system. ecoDMS Server can be installed on a QNAP and Synology system. ecoDMS supports those device types from QNAP and Synology which allow container virtualization via "Docker". Not all models of the Synology and QNAP ranges support Docker. If the latest version of the Synology or QNAP software is installed on an NAS, and Docker is not available, the model is not compatible with ecoDMS. The download source and installation are descibed in the ecoDMS installation guide. You cannot download the components directly from the ecoDMS website.

Before installing an update, read the notes in the installation manual!

Quick and Easy Steps to an Optimum Archiving System
This video presents the components and shows which software and first steps are necessary for the installation. The following link will take you directly to the YouTube webpage.

Update & Upgrade

  • Ensure you make a backup before updating or upgrading.
  • If you wish to upgrade from a previous version to a new major release, please follow the upgrade steps in the new installation manual.
  • For a simple update of the same major release, just install the software over the old version.
  • You must always update all components.
We value the security of your data and information. With each update we optimise our software. In doing so, we work according to the latest security standards. We therefore advise you to always install the latest version of all ecoDMS components.

Free Trial

With a new installation (no upgrade) you can try ecoDMS for 60 days with the trial version. For private users ecoDMS is available for free in the Free4Three Edition. The packages of the trial, Free4Three and full editions are identical. Please note that the trial period automatically ends when you load a backup. If you are using an earlier version of ecoDMS and want to test this major release, we recommend you install this version on a separate test machine.

Technical Information

Please note the official system requirements for each application before installation. If your system does not meet these requirements, we cannot guarantee the smooth and stable operation of our software.
