Description: Gentoo's installer for web-based applications

Most of the documentation can be found either with man webapp-config or in the following wiki:

Getting started


The following few commands are useful to have a proper overview of what's is already present on your system:

# webapp-config --list-installs
# webapp-config --list-unused-install

The file /etc/vhosts/webapp-config also contains important settings which will affect all major operations, so check it out.

Install / remove a web application

# webapp-config -h localhost -d postfixadmin -I postfixadmin 3.1

The above command will install postfixadmin version 3.1 within the host localhost situated within /var/www/localhost/htdocs/ under the subdirectory /var/www/localhost/htdocs/postfixadmin/.

See the application installed and its version:

# webapp-config --show-installed -h localhost -d postfixadmin
postfixadmin 3.1

Use the output of the command above as arguments to remove the application:

# webapp-config -h localhost -d postfixadmin -C  postfixadmin 3.1
