Trying to try it out, but very confused!

Hello, all. My company has a traditional website, but with the increase in tablet and phone browsing and the inability to find reliable help, I'm thinking migrating to something like OcPortal might be a good idea. Is there a way to 'play' with the software on a standalone computer to get a feel for a) how it works and b) how easy it would be to get other people to learn at least parts of the process?

Hi Sad1e,

You can easily install on a Windows machine using Bitnami to have a play:
https://bitnami.com/stack/ocportal


Become a fan of ocPortal on Facebook or add me as a friend. Add me on on Twitter.
Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
