Chamilo 1.x Installation

See the installation guide:

Testing Chamilo for bugs

If you'd like to make sure something that is happening on your Chamilo portal is not specific to your portal, we provide a series of test portals (regularly erased and replaced by newer versions) for each branch of Chamilo. Log into any of these as administrator using the login/password pair admin/admin:

This will change over time, but the logic will stay the same. So if you have a doubt, confirm your test case on one of these portals, so you can share the URL publicly of where the problem appears. This will help us a lot when locating the issue and trying to solve it.


Chamilo uses the GNU/GPLv3 license, and includes a series of other open source projects or libraries with compatible licenses. A few third-party services also have integrations with Chamilo, but you can enable or disable them at will.
