vichan - A lightweight and full featured PHP imageboard.


vichan is a free light-weight, fast, highly configurable and user-friendly imageboard software package. It is written in PHP and has few dependencies.

vichan is a fork of Tinyboard, a great imageboard package, actively building on it and adding a lot of features and another improvements.

Support and announcements:


  1. PHP >= 5.3
  2. MySQL/MariaDB server
  3. mbstring
  4. PHP GD
  5. PHP PDO

We try to make sure vichan is compatible with all major web servers and operating systems. vichan does not include an Apache .htaccess file nor does it need one.

  1. MySQL/MariaDB server >= 5.5.3
  2. ImageMagick (command-line ImageMagick or GraphicsMagick preferred).
  3. APC (Alternative PHP Cache), XCache or Memcached


You can contribute to vichan by:

  • Developing patches/improvements/translations and using GitHub to submit pull requests

If you need help developing a patch, please join our IRC channel.


  1. Download and extract Tinyboard to your web directory or get the latest development version with:

    git clone git://
  2. Navigate to install.php in your web browser and follow the prompts.

  3. vichan should now be installed. Log in to mod.php with the default username and password combination: admin / password.

Tinyboard is still beta software -- there are bound to be bugs. If you find a bug, please report it.

If you need assistance with installing, configuring, or using vichan, you may find support from a variety of sources:

Tinyboard support

vichan is based on a Tinyboard, so both engines have very much in common. These links may be helpful for you as well:

CLI tools

There are a few command line interface tools, based on Tinyboard-Tools. These need to be launched from a Unix shell account (SSH, or something). They are located in a tools/ directory.

You actually don't need these tools for your imageboard functioning, they are aimed at the power users. You won't be able to run these from shared hosting accounts (i.e. all free web servers).
