Welcome to Metadot Portal Server
Metadot Portal Server is a leading open source portal system. Its ease of use allows non technical people to create very powerful websites and portals just with the clicks of a mouse. Its architecture makes it extremely easy to customize and deploy. It is available for free under the GNU General Public License (GPL). It provides collaboration, content management, as well as My News Page (like My Yahoo) and online database applications. Typically it is used to create web portals, intranets, extranets, organization and project websites.
When it was first released in April 2000, it revolutionized the way complex websites are built by giving easy-to-use tools to non-technical users allowing them to create powerful database-backed websites without having to involve a webmaster or the IT department!
It runs primarily on Linux, Apache, MySQL and Perl and supports Sun Solaris, Windows OSes and Oracle database.
It is available for free and it can be downloaded here. For business users we have a Business Edition solution.
