Can I use IBANs with LedgerSMB?

Yes. IBANs are very long, bank account numbers. LedgerSMB has no problems storing, retrieving and using these without any issue.

Is LedgerSMB SEPA proof?

Yes. SEPA (Single Euro Payments Area) requires support for very long bank account numbers (IBANs or International Bank Account Numbers). LedgerSMB can store and use these numbers without problems.

How do I restore my data?

Assuming you have created a backup file using setup.pl, you can restore your database using the command:

 $ pg_restore [options] your_backup.bak

It should be pointed out that it's not possible to restore a backup to a database with a different name than the one you made the backup from!

How do I create a backup?

In the 'setup.pl' administrative interface, there are 2 buttons:

  • Backup database
  • Backup roles

One creates a backup of the content of your database. The other creates a backup of the roles.

Roles are elements which are required to exist before creation of a database, and assign fine-grained access control.

When restoring, you need both files and you need to restore the roles before the database.

Can I use LedgerSMB on MS Windows?

The answer to this question depends on what using means to you.

As a user of the web application, yes, there should be absolutely no problem using a recent (as in: no more than 2 or 3 years old) web browser in order to take advantage of all the features available.

I'm using non-ASCII (Unicode) characters. Why can't I generate PDF output?

The short answer is that TeX doesn't know how to deal with UTF-8 (or rather non-ASCII) characters. XeTeX has been designed to work around these limitations. The easiest way to generate PDFs is to install Xe(La)TeX and use the 'xedemo' templates - these templates have been 'ported' from LaTeX to XeLaTeX.

Distribution specific install instructions listed below.

Debian / Ubuntu 

Install texlive-xetex that includes xelatex

End of life

If you're looking for help on how to use EOL-ed versions, please try mailing the users mailing list. If you're looking someone to create bugfixes, please check with one of the parties providing commercial support.

Version 1.3 has been declared end-of-life on 2015-12-23. The last release in the series is 1.3.47. No further releases will be made by the community.

LedgerSMB versions 1.0, 1.1 and 1.2 won't be maintained any further due to the fact that there are some known security issues which can't be fixed.
