CMSimple 5.15 is available for download. This download can be used for new installations and for updates as well.

ChangeLog »


Since CMSimple 4.0.3 a new URI separator is used. It was necessary for working facebook links. If you want to convert an old CMSimple website to CMSimple 5.15, read the relevant pages of the documentation carefully !!!

The folders, beginning with "2", are copy templates for second languages and subsites and are not needed on the webserver.

Before you update a CMSimple Installation, you should make a backup of the whole installation on your PC.

From CMSimple 5.11 there is no separate download for updates anymore, for updates of CMSimple 4.0 or higher the normal CMSimple download can be used.

The unzipped download on the PC can simply be uploaded over the existing CMSimple installation. After that you can log in as usual and check the success of the update under:

Settings => System Info

It is recommended to run the updates regularly.

In case of problems after the update, please do the following steps:

  • give the new file ./cmsimple/log.php writing permissions (chmod 666)
  • go to Settings => CMS and save it once (1x).
  • go to Settings => language and save it once (1x).
  • open one page and save it once (1x).
  • Delete cookies and clear browser cache
