Since Version 6 (20129, the website is fully based on PHP. That means this is a classical website where every single page is a PHP file. The directory structure works like

  /de      - German pages
  /en      - English pages
  /lib     - PHP framework files
  /shared  - All assets (Pictures, CSS, Javascript)

The menu/sitemap is composed from the files navigation.xml. As this is quite some work, the rendered pages are cached.

The website can also run in subdirectories (ie. but requires adaptions with the t29Host system. The file lib/host.php contains some examples how to generate links in such a setup.

The directory /shared/cache must be writable for the webserver/PHP process.
