UPDox (updox.upd.edu.ph) is a document management system for the UP faculty and some UP offices. Run by DILC, UPDox uses Alfresco and other document collaboration, version control, and file sharing systems. Priority is given to official, University-related use.

To request access accounts, email dilc@dilc.upd.edu.ph.


  • Within Dilnet: you may have to set proxy exception for the UPDox address.
  • Make sure port 8080 is useable.


There are 2 complementary repositories directly accessible from the user's desktop:

  • UPDox-Rep1 is for collaboration via Git-like repository. Codes, non-large documents (preferably <10MB a file) may be consolidated directly from users' desktops or access devices. Not recommended for large files.
  • UPDox-Rep2 is for direct within team sharing of large files a la peer-to-peer torrent. Recommended for large files.


  • UPDox supports a wide range of document types.
  • Recommendation: Ultra-sensitive documents passed through the Repositories should be encrypted by tools like TrueCrypt. (It's only the "ultra" ones that should be doubly secured, since UPDox already has its own security measures.)



  • For those using its Repositories, UPDox is already a form of a backup.
  • Yet, UPDox is still backed up in an off-site facility, making the system more disaster-resistant.
