A very simple and primitive content management system I made very very earlier, probably in 2012 if I remember correctly. But it still does the work. It doesn't use a database and directly store all the data in plain text files and directories. I still use it in my website.
How to set it up?
- Put all the files in your server.
- Using a text editor, edit "admin.php", follow the instructions there. You need to write down FTP host, username, password and root directory.
- Again, using a text editor, change the password in "MCMSR/secured/pass.txt". Yep, it's stored as a plaintext :), but it's permissions are gonna be set to prevent anyone looking at it, except the server admin.
- Now you can go to "yoursite.com/admin.php" in the browser and login with the password.
- In the admin panel, you can add 1st level categories, 2nd level sub-categories to them, and pages to the sub categories. You can delete or modify existing ones. Oh, you can also change the password from there.
- Changes will appear immediately in "yoursite.com".
- To change the appearance of your site, you have to manually edit "index.php", images, .css files, etc.
