JAF CMS - ...just another flat file CMS, is a Content Management System (CMS) consist of a powerful set of PHP scripts that allow you to maintain personal home page in an easy way. There is no need for a database. The pages stored in a simple flat file. I've coded this script because I realize that its hard to found server (especially free space) offering PHP with database support already.

JAF CMS - ...just another flat file CMS is intended for the people who want to build a simple personal homepage without database suported on their server, and easy maintenance over their sites.

  • Accessed by any browser (IE Version 5.5 or better, Firefox 1.0++, Mozilla 1.2, Netscape 7.x+, etc)
  • WYSIWYG editor on Administration area

  • A web server (We recommend Apache, but others server should be working too)
  • PHP (version 4.0.x or higher is recommended)
  • Some HTML and CSS knowledge, only needed if you want to edit templates
  • Web Write access to web directory. On a Windows machine locally, this is not a problem. Remotely, you need to be allowed to CHMOD (setting directory/file permission) through SSH, FTP, telnet or any means.

For people running small web sites, it's should not cause any problem to edit 5-10 pages. But, for web sites that get hundreds of pages, I didn't think that its a good solutions. As mentioned before JAF CMS - ...just another flat file CMS created as a small personal home page CMS.
