What is OpenProject?

OpenProject is a free and open-source project management application. Classic, agile, and hybrid project management are all supported. From the early planning to project execution and documentation, OpenProject allows distributed teams to collaborate throughout the project lifecycle. Over 30 languages are supported by the software. OpenProject is a project management tool for businesses of any size and industry that value privacy, security, and data sovereignty. OpenProject's core features and applications include: - Project portfolio management - Project planning and scheduling - Task management

Organizations can use OpenProject to construct project milestones, tasks, and phases on a timetable, set start or due dates, and edit various task items using a drag-and-drop interface. Administrators may create, amend, and assign tasks to employees, as well as attach photographs, comments, and documents to assignments and export task lists to XLS, CSV, and PDF formats. Supervisors may create templates by duplicating existing tasks, set access permissions for employees or stakeholders, use Kanban boards to manage project workflows, and use the centralized dashboard to see budgets, time, and expenses.

3. What are the system requirements?

With an expanding number of users, you'll need additional CPUs (the faster, the better) and RAM. Technically, the number of concurrent users is all that matters. Whether you have 1000 or only 100 total users, the CPU and RAM requirements will be the same if only 20 users are operating at the same time. Nonetheless, the overall number of users is a fair general predictor of the amount of resources you'll require. The database will also require resources, which will rise in tandem with the number of users. When you work with AssistNix, you won't have to worry about anything because our team will walk you through everything and handle everything for you.

6. Can I use OpenProject offline?

Offline use of OpenProject is not possible. To utilise the project, you'll need Internet connectivity. However, there are a number of dependencies that must be loaded during installation for the bundled installation. As a result, for offline installation, we propose using a Docker configuration. A Docker image includes all requirements and may be shared as a single file (through docker save) without the need for additional dependencies. You may also install OpenProject on a virtual machine with Internet connectivity and then re-use the virtual machine image on the offline hosts.

7. How can I migrate from Bitnami to OpenProject?

Please supply the following information to move from Bitnami to Enterprise cloud:
