DocuShare Testing

We focus DocuShare testing on the most popular combinations of operating systems, databases, Web servers, and LDAP directory servers; these are our reference platforms.

DocuShare does run in many operating environments beyond our reference platforms. However, since we do not test beyond our references, we cannot claim DocuShare will work on other platforms.

Problems encountered when running DocuShare on non-reference platforms, which cannot be recreated on a reference platform, will be given a lower priority than problems running on a reference platform.
