phpwcms is a very flexible, fast, robust, customer and developer friendly but yet powerful web based content management system and cms framework running under PHP and MySQL/MariaDB. phpwcms is created and maintained by Oliver Georgi.
To get started, checkout phpwcms.org or the community driven HowTo Wiki (snapshot). Most questions are yet answered on the phpwcms support forum.
Stable releases can be used by cloning the repository,
git clone git://github.com/slackero/phpwcms.git or
download the archive.
To start with the latest development version use
git clone -b v1.9-dev git://github.com/slackero/phpwcms.git or
download the archive.
If downloaded instead of
git clone, unarchive and copy the files to your web document root or sub folder.
Link your browser to the related URL and follow the install instructions.
Server system requirements
phpwcms version 1.9.36 requires a web server with PHP 7.4 or newer. and a MySQL/MariaDB database (minimum version 5.1, recommend 5.5+).
Because of the project history there are several probable problems regarding the database. MySQL changed the time and date related default values over the last years. Check to setup the related config values to connect to the database in a more compatible way. MySQL Strict is no good option. I work on this to solve the problems soon.
