Self-hosted FAQ's

What do I need to run CreativePro Office on my own server?

You will need a server environment with the following:

How many users, projects, or files can I have?

Unlimited! The self-hosted option allows you to have as many users, clients, projects, and files as you need. You're only limited by your server storage capacity.

Can I import my hosted account data into my self-hosted copy?

No, not yet!

We are working on an import feature that will allow you to import data from a CreativePro Office hosted account into your self-hosted installation. This should be available as an update in late June, 2011.

What kind of support can I expect to get?

We offer 1 free hour of installation support, 1 year of priority email support, and 1 year of free updates to the code. Additional years of support and updates can be purchased for $199.00 per year. We have found that this level of support is usually enough to get customers up and running and to take care of quirks and bugs down the road.

Is the self-hosted version the same as the hosted version at

For the most part, yes. We release updates to the self-hosted version once per quarter while we update the hosted application weekly. So your self-hosted version will be at most 3 months behind the hosted version regarding features.

However, you can rest assured that your installation will be up to date by the time you install the first update.

Can I modify the source code to add features or change things?

Yes you can! Your license gives you a complete copy of the source code. You can update, modify, and add feature however you wish. You can change colors or can alter email messages that get sent to your clients.

CreativePro Office is build on the Codeigniter PHP framework and should be fairly simple for an experienced PHP developer to modify. Down the road, we hope to have some tutorials and other help for modifying the code.

Modifying the source code may complicate or prevent future code updates from working correctly. Please be sure you know what you're doing and feel free to ask for help.

What exactly can I do with my license?

You can ...

You cannot ever, ever, ever ...

We are wanting to switch all our book keeping to CPO from Freshbooks, so we can use CPO for everything. Thanks for a great product.

Hi! I've been trying out your software and have to congratulate you. I've tried some of your competitors and CPO is by far the most intuitive and easy to use. The price is hard to beat as well.
