Installation on RedHat/Centos/Oracle Linux Enterprise

This page hasn't been updated for a while, and it's probably obsolete.
  • Do not forget to change the default username/password.
  • Do not allow everybody to access the directory data from the URL.
  • Enable .htaccess if you use Apache (Option AllowOverride All).
  • This is your responsability to configure your server correctly.

Centos 7

Install PHP and Apache:

yum install -y php php-xml php-mbstring php-pdo php-gd unzip wget

By default, Centos 7 use PHP 5.4.16 and Apache 2.4.6.

Restart Apache:

systemctl restart httpd.service

Install Kanboard:

cd /var/www/html

# Download the latest release from

unzip kanboard-<version>.zip
chown -R apache:apache kanboard-<version>/data
rm kanboard-<version>.zip

SELinux restrictions

If SELinux is enabled, be sure that the Apache user can write to the directory data:

chcon -R -t httpd_sys_content_rw_t /var/www/html/kanboard/data

Be sure to configure your server to allow Kanboard to send emails and make external network requests, for example with SELinux:

setsebool -P httpd_can_network_connect=1

Allowing external connections is necessary if you use LDAP, SMTP, Web hooks or any third-party integration.
