Why a demo? The eIrOcA mobile site is done with EPS.

  GD Library ... OK v. 2
  testing directory ...
  Portal found(s):

You have finished to install the EPS portal framework, you can test a Web portal typing http://apache_domain/test_web/ and the mobile portal using http://apache_domain/test_mobile/.

Developing Portal

Currently no documentation is available :-(

See the test_xxx directory to see how the framework works.

Just remember that for Web portals each page is a subdirectory inside the “pages” directory and after adding or removing a subdirectory you need to run the setup.php (or delete the portal/data/index.ini).


In real portals change the eps_config.inc of your portals in order to use logs, var directory. Don't to forget to make /lib and data, logs directory not public available (e.g. changing permission or .htaccess file).
