Snipe-IT Asset Management Installation Documentation

Welcome to the Snipe-IT documentation hub. You'll find comprehensive guides and documentation to help you install Snipe-IT as quickly as possible, as well as support if you get stuck. Let's jump right in!

Get Started    


Snipe-IT is a Free Open Source (FOSS) project built on Laravel 5.3

Snipe-IT was made for IT asset management, to enable IT departments to track who has which laptop, when it was purchased, which software licenses and accessories are available, and so on.

This project is actively developed and we release quite frequently. Check out the Snipe-IT website for a demo, a comprehensive list of features, screenshots and our announcements for updates on new versions.

This is web-based software

This means there there is no executable file (aka no .exe files), and it must be run on a web server and accessed through a web browser. It runs on any flavor of Linux or OSX as well as Windows, however you are expected to have a decent working knowledge of setting up a web server on a LAMP (or equivalent IIS) stack.

File Structure

Since Snipe-IT is built on Laravel, it follows a standard Laravel MVC file structure. Within the Snipe-IT project, you'll see a public directory. That directory should be set as your document root.

For all commands mentioned in this documentation, you should ALWAYS be running those commands from the Snipe-IT project directory.
