WebGUI is web done right

WebGUI is a web application framework and web content management system that puts the publishing power in the hands of the people who create the content, rather than the IT staff. Join the thousands of businesses, universities, and schools that have found out just how easy the web can be.

WRE Binaries

The WebGUI Runtime Environment (WRE) includes WebGUI and all prerequisites so that installation is quick and easy. Installing WebGUI through these platform-specific binaries is highly recommended.


If a binary is not available for your platform, you must perform a source install.

VMWare Appliance

If you're just trying out WebGUI, or you run a VMWare Appliance server farm, you may want to try out WebGUI as a VMWare appliance. VMWare Appliance is recommended for Windows installs.


NOTE: This appliance requires a VMWare Player Version 2 compatible virtual machine. 

Appliance Username: root

Appliance Password: 123qwe

If you are interested in packaging WebGUI for a particular distro, be sure to post your interest on the community forums or talk with other developers in the WebGUI IRC channel: (

Download Source

You also have the option of doing a source install. However, this is NOT recommended because the WRE simplifies the installation, includes all prerequisites, provides a stable and optimized environment for WebGUI, and performs 300% faster than a source install.
