CMSimple is a free content management system. It aims to be simple, small and fast. As it is written in PHP it runs on Linux/Apache servers, or on Win32 with Apache or IIS. CMSimple is licensed under the terms of the Affero General Public License.

CMSimple does not need a database as it writes page data directly to a HTML file on the web server. This simplifies installation and backups, and also makes CMSimple a low cost option on web hosts which charge extra for database access. Configuration files and language files are also saved in txt format. Like many Content Management Systems, CMSimple offers a wide variety of plug-ins, including many made by third parties.

tructure

The "look and feel" of a CMSimple website is stored in a template file using HTML and css. This can be designed by the installer or selected from over 500 free templates available through CMSimple. Third-party designers can be commissioned to provide a unique template. All error messages and text strings are contained in a plain text file. These are available in many languages, and can be translated by the installer to match the users dialect or language. If support is needed, the installer can make necessary changes on the user's low-spec machine or remotely.Byg et website, Britt Malka, ISBN 87-7843-711-3.]

A basic site, using a default template, can be uploaded to the server, configured and populated with pre-existing text within 20 minutes. Template customization takes more time, and requires knowledge of HTML and CSS.Citation | last =Smith | first =Tim | title = Build a dynamic website with the minimum of fuss and requirements

] Several hundred templates are available at no cost.
