The AppsCMS came from the need to have an easy to install, use and maintain web management system for workshops, store rooms and laboratories.
The AppsCMS can operate on an isolated intranet network, making it ideal for internal private web sites.
As well as for public access web sites.
The AppsCMS is a PHP developers web applications management system.
Not wanting to wrangle with abstract concepts (both software and design) in mainstream
content management systems and deal of problematic installations,
I wrote the AppsCMS for this role.
The installation comes as a self installing bash script (2,2MB) for LINUX and a ZIP (1.6M) file for general installations.
Available on the "https://github.com/AppsCMS/AppsCMS_Latest/blob/master/AppsCMS-Installer-latest.sh" repository and
on "http://appscms.org/" web site.
Access to web pages is controlled by user and group permissions.
Individual users or groups can have administation privileges, to a page or to the whole web site.
Users with privileges are required to have a username and password.
Access by public (guest) users is controlled by permissions.
AppsCMS provides settings and configuration pages to write, edit and maintain the contents.
A further consideration is to have a common method to link to locally installed tools
(e.g. WebSVN, Database tools, Regex testers, etc).
AppsCMS also provides a methods for displaying only the necessary content for each user or group.
A user can log into AppsCMS.
Each user can be a member of a number of groups
and so allows content set for group/s to display the appropriate pages.
A user also be an administrator or a group manager.
The AppsCMS has many built in aids including programming aids, log viewing, debugging, examples and setup searches.
Making the AppsCMS easy to learn and implement.
