Chevereto Free

Discord badge

Chevereto is an image hosting software that allows you to create a beautiful and full-featured image hosting website on your own server. It's your hosting and your rules, so say goodbye to closures and restrictions. This repo here is Chevereto Free, which is a fork of Chevereto V3 in which only the most essential features are preserved and it is released as Open Source software.

Building the next-gen Chevereto

Chevereto is being modernized by introducing new coding standards and turning towards a common Open Source base. Read all updates and check my Chevere + Chevereto V4 Trello board.

Minimum system requirements

Make sure your server meets the minimum system requirements which are:

  • PHP 7 (PHP 5.6 min)
  • MySQL 8 / MariaDB 10 (ALL PRIVILEGES)
  • Apache / NGiNX web server

The system has a built-in system check that will tell you right away when you need to fix something on your server.


Chevereto can be installed in several different ways, it all depends on what suits you best.

āš”Install using Installer

The installer is a single .php file which will download and extract the latest release for you. Automatic database setup for cPanel based web servers.

  1. Download the Chevereto Installer
  2. Upload the installer.php file to your target public_html folder.
  3. Open your website and follow the steps.

šŸ³Install using Docker

Docker allows you to easily install and maintain all the server dependencies with ease by using automated application containers. The ready-to-use Docker images are under nmtan/chevereto (many thanks to Tan Nguyen)

āœØInstall using Softaculous/Fantastico

If your web hosting includes Softaculous/Fantastico, you can install Chevereto Free with just one click. Chevereto Free should be available for one-click install under the "Image Galleries" category.

šŸ“¦Install via zip/tarball

  1. Download the latest release
  2. Upload the contents of your download to your server (usually the public_html folder)
  3. Go to your website and follow the instructions

For additional installation instructions, refer to our official documentation.


Chevereto has a built-in system that checks for new updates every day via the Chevereto API. The system will notify you when an update is available, and it will guide you through the process.

Upgrade to paid edition

Chevereto Free has the same look and feel of the paid version. Most likely it will fit all your personal needs. The features removed in this fork are those business-oriented like external storage servers or banner management to name a few. To upgrade to our paid edition, simply navigate to your dashboard panel and click on the upgrade button.
