Jump to: navigation, search

The User Manual is meant to be a very basic guide to help those who are simply trying to use SME Server, rather than those who are administrating SME or are developing SME applications. It is geared to those who are new to SME and does not require a high level of technical understanding. We recommend that SME Administrators take a look at the User Manual as well as their own, in order to see SME as it appears to their users.

We're here to provide collaborative documentation of the SME Server project. SME Server is a leading distribution for small and medium enterprises. It stands apart from the competition by shipping with most common functionality preconfigured and features a number of popular additional enhancements in the form of downloadable 'contributions'. It is published under the GPL license and while freely available, a small donation is requested.
