Hubzilla - Community Server

Installing Hubzilla

What is Hubzilla?

Hubzilla is a general purpose communication server integrated with a web publishing system and a decentralised permission system. If this sounds like a bunch of technical mumbo-jumbo to you, just think of it as an independent platform for sharing stuff online (publicly or privately).

Hubzilla contains some social network bits, some cloud storage bits, some blog and forum bits, and some content management bits. These are all integrated within a common privacy framework - and it is all decentralised.

Everything you publish or share can be restricted to those channels and people you wish to share them with; and these permissions work completely invisibly - even with channels on different servers or other communications services.

Migration and live backups of your connections, settings, and everything you publish are built-in, so you never need worry about server failure.

Hubzilla is completely decentralised and open source, for you modify or adapt to your needs and desires. Plugins, themes, and numerous configuration options extend the overall capabilities to do anything you can imagine.

Who Are We?

The Hubzilla community consists of passionate volunteers creating an open source commons of decentralised services which are highly integrated and can rival the feature set of large centralised providers. We do our best to provide ethical software which places you in control of your online communications and privacy expectations.
