Download Update CMSimple 4.0 => 4.7.3 »
(ca. 1.2 MByte zip - 2017-12-15)

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

Just upload the other folders (not beginning with "2") and files to the root folder of your CMSimple installation and ignore any browser messages (eg "ok" to confirm).

Following folders and files should be writable for an update:

  • ./content/ (chmod 777)
  • ./cmsimple/languages/ (chmod 777)
  • ./cmsimple/languages/all files  (chmod 666)

An update is recommended.

This update does NOT change the URI separator, it will only allow multi-character URI separators.

After the update, do the following steps:

  • give the new file ./cmsimple/log.php writing permissions (chmod 666)
  • go to the CMS Configuration 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
