LedgerSMB is a double entry accounting system. It is a fork of a popular general ledger software package called SQL-Ledger, and seeks to provide better security and data integrity controls, better community support, open documentation, and more.
Accounting data is stored in an SQL Database Server, either locally or remote, and a standard web browser can be used as its user interface. The system is linked by a chart of accounts.
All transactions for AR, AP and GL are stored in a transaction table. Hyper-links from the chart of accounts let you view transactions posted through AR, AP and GL.
The system uses the Perl language and a Perl database interface module for processing, and PostgreSQL for data storage.
It has been tested with PostgreSQL, Apache, Netscape, Firefox, Galeon, Explorer, Links, Lynx, Konqueror, Voyager, W3M and Opera clients.
