3 Content Management Systems (CMS) That Don’t Use a Database

Sometimes a database driven Content Management Systems (CMS) website might be overkill for the overall requirements of a small business website. In times like theses here are a few alternative CMS solutions that don’t require a database and will still allow for easily updating of text and images on a website.

  • Kirby
  • Pulse CMS
  • GetSimple CMS

1. Kirby

Kirby is a file‑based CMS  Easy to setup. Easy to use.

Kirby System requirements

Kirby runs on PHP 5.3+, Apache 2 or Ngnix. Lighthttpd should be doable but is not officially supported.

Kirby has been successfully tested on MAMP, XAMPP and PHP’s built-in server for local installations.

The Kirby Panel works great with any modern browser starting with Internet Explorer 10.
