↓markdown↓ CMS README
A simple, fast, lean, flat file (no database) CMS for easy and quick website generation and publishing. If you can type text you can build a website.
A HTTP server (e.g. Apache) with PHP installed, that's all. Great for low cost hosting plans. A web server with PHP is supplied as standard by nearly all web hosting providers. ↓markdown↓ CMS is easy to configure for a Virtual Private Server (VPS), dedicated server or any PC.
(In the following it is assumed that example.com will be replaced with your own registered domain name, or localhost for a test or website development computer.)
Drop the code on to the web server. Just extract the zip contents to the public HTML root folder (if using the GitHub zip file extract everything in zip file's first folder). If PHP is enabled and the web server supports URL rewrite, as most do, then ↓markdown↓ CMS is ready (e.g. example.com/md).
Folder and files are structure and content. Start by creating an index.md file in the root. Add .md files for more web pages:
- index.md for example.com
- apage.md for example.com/apage
- sub/page.md for example.com/sub/page
Set Site Name and Logo
Upload an image for the website logo. Copy md/md-config.php to site-config.php (i.e. into the public root folder). Edit site-config.php to set the values for the site name and the logo.
