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 or the following command on the command line (which is the command line equivalent of what does):

 $ pg_dump -F c -f your_backup.bak your_company_database


You can restore your database using the command:

How do I backup my data?

As of 1.3.7 the backup functionality moved to, the database administration interface.

Login with your ledgersmb database user / admin user. This can't be done using your normal LedgerSMB login account since it doesn't have enough rights to backup db and roles. The default address for is http://localhost/ledgersmb/

The backup facility consists of two parts:

1.4.7 released

The LedgerSMB team is proud to announce the release of LedgerSMB 1.4.7.  This release brings the ability to store templates formatted differently for different languages in the database, corrects display issues on the Income Statement, adds client-side validation to contact forms for easier use, and fixes a couple of minor other errors.  The complete changelog is below.  Users should probably consider upgrading in the near future if they use the built-in profit and loss reports.

1.4.6 and 1.3.46 released

LedgerSMB 1.4.6 has been released.  It provides new product returns logic, allowing for better accounting of product returns.  To use this, you must set up return accounts in your chart of accounts and set them on your goods.  Otherwise returns may result in errors.  If one needs help with this process, please email on the list.  We have also removed the old batch printing system which was not well maintained.  We expect to have an improved replacement in the next 1.4 version but the sust

1.4.5 and 1.3.45 released

The LedgerSMB team is proud to announce the release of versions 1.3.45 and 1.4.5 of that ERP software.

1.4.4 Released

The LedgerSMB Core Team is proud to announce the release of version 1.4.4 of our software.  The LedgerSMB 1.4 brings a number of advantages including funds accounting and better reporting and is the latest and greatest major version of the LedgerSMB ERP and financial accounting system.

1.4.3 Released

LedgerSMB 1.4.3 has been released.  There is a significant problem fixed here which everyone should be aware of.  The currency formatting settings moved from per installation to per-company, but the sales tax calculations used the old location and therefore rounded off to the nearest whole currency.  This only affected users of 1.4.0 - 1.4.2.  If anyone has a need to go through and determine what the impacts are for sales tax regulation, please contact Chris Travers, as he am glad to put

1.4.2 and 1.3.44 released

In response to a problem found with batch processing in 1.4 and confirmed in 1.3, we have gone ahead and released 1.3.44 a bit early and with a fairly small changelog.  Especially if you use batch processing on 1.3 you should upgrade.  Long-time users may not notice the problem on older, upgraded databases, but with newer databases, the batch locks may lock users out of the software.
