phpCMS is designed to use system resources efficiently.
Unlike other content management systems, phpCMS needs no SQL database. All data is saved in the local file system. This often improves the response time of the web server.
phpCMS has a very efficient caching process and very optimized source code; therefore it is also suited for use in "shared webhosting" systems, where many webmasters share one server.
These are the minimum requirements for running phpCMS:
- a web server (We recommend the Apache web server)
- PHP version 4.0.6 or PHP5 (* see note)
- 2.5MB disk space
- you need no database!
(*) if PHP is running in safe mode, then phpCMS will have limited functionality. Safe mode restricts access to the file system. You can ask your web host if php is running in safe mode.
