What is Microweber?

Microweber is a new generation content management system that allows you to create a website using drag and drop. You can easily manipulate the content and the layout of your pages. No coding skills are required.

Live Demo

Requirements

  • HTTP server (Apache, IIS, nginx, etc.)
  • Database server
  • PHP >= 5.4 or HHVM. The following only apply to PHP as they're included in the HHVM core.
    • lib-xml must be enabled (with DOM support)
    • GD PHP extension
    • Mcrypt PHP extension

Developer Note: Microweber runs great on HHVM. We highly recommend replacing PHP with HHVM (on Linux environments) or at least try it out if it's new to you.

HTTP Server

Apache

The mod_rewrite module must be enabled in your Apache configuration. Microweber creates the necessary .htaccess files during installation, including one with Deny All directive in each folder to ensure no entry points other than index.php.

nginx

Add this location directive to your server configuration block. The root directive must point to the base folder of your Microweber website (which by default is where this readme is located).

server {
  location / {
    try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php$is_args$args;
  }
}

IIS

You can easily import the .htaccess rewrite rules. Make sure you have enabled the URL Rewrite module for your website.

Database

You have several choices for database engine: MySQL, SQLite, Microsoft SQL Server and PostgreSQL. For small websites we highly recommend SQLite. However, you can connect to more storage services (like MongoDB or Neo4j) and really take advantage of the Laravel framework.

On the installation screen you can only choose from databases enabled in your PHP configuration. If you don't see your server of choice in the list you have to enable the corresponding PDO extension for your database server. An example for Microsoft SQL Server. PHP usually comes with PDO enabled by default but you might have to uncomment or add extension directives to your php.ini.

Installation

The fast way: Download and unzip.

Via Composer

Installing dependencies

You need to have Composer installed in order to download Microweber's dependencies.

You can clone and install Microweber with one command: composer create-project microweber/microweber my_site dev-master --prefer-dist --no-dev This will install Microweber in a folder named my_ste.

Another way is to first clone the repository and then run composer install in the base directory.

File permissions

Make sure these folders, and everything inside, is writeable by the user executing the PHP scripts:

  • config/
  • src/
  • storage/
  • userfiles/
