Create a Subsite

To create a subsite, works similarly as to create a second language.

In the download you will find a folder "2site", that you can copy, rename and upload to the installation directory of CMSimple.

Unlike a second language, the folder name of a subsite should have more than 2 characters (example: Subsite01).

Now you need to set the necessary read and write permissions for a few folders and files.

Files and Folders permissions

"subsite" is for example only.

Folders: chmod 777

  • ./subsite/content

Files: chmod 666

  • ./subsite/disabled_plugins.txt
  • ./subsite/config.php
  • ./subsite/content/content.htm
  • ./subsite/content/pagedata.php

Now your subsite should work.

! Please change your login password immediately !
