Installing Appweb

Appweb releases are available as source code distributions.

Several build environments are supported:

For other environments, you will need to cross-compile. The source code has been designed to run on FreeBSD, Linux, Mac OS X and other operating systems. It has been tested under Fedora and Ubuntu Linux based on the Linux 3 Kernel and MAC OS X 10.11.

Accessing the Source Code

With each Appweb release, a complete source code snapshot is provided. You can download a source package from the Appweb web site.

Building Appweb from Source

The Appweb source distribution contains all the required source files, headers, and test framework to reconfigure, build, and verify Appweb. The software supports two methods for building from source.

Building via make is the simplest way to build. Use make if you want a default build or if you need to integrate Appweb with an existing make-based build system.

Use the Visual Studio or Xcode if you are most comfortable with these tools and want a default build.

Building from Source


If upgrading from a previous version, please save your appweb.conf and other configuration files, custom modules and other data. Then remove the previous version of Appweb. Next, install the new release and apply your configuration.
