What is CI-CMS

CI-CMS is a Codeigniter Content Managment System. This is a combination of my primary concept of how to create a CMS and the ease from Codeigniter. I already created a personal CMS called Solaitra, that I use in many sites now (around 50), and I just want to transport that in CI framework.
Solaitra is a very easy modular CMS, it has many modules such as pages, news, forum, gallery, downloads, quotes, guestbook etc. I just need to port those modules to work in CI and the result will be CI-CMS.

Using FastCGI

I was struggling to understand the ‘No input file specified’ error I got when using ci-cms2 with FastCGI. In fact to reduce the number of Apache process in my server I opted to use Fcgi instead of mod_php. But then I got that error.
To fix it, here is what I did.
  • in .htaccess file just add a "?" just after index.php (I found it here)
  • Be sure to use AUTO in config.php (for $config['uri_protocol'])

CI-CMS2 will use Codeigniter 2

Now that Codeigniter 2 is out, we have started to update CI-CMS and will call it CI-CMS2. You can download test and report issue in the new repository https://bitbucket.org/hery/ci-cms
It is not yet a stable version so you are not advised to use it for your final product.

Beta working well

We've been using now for a month and it seems to go well as expected. Some new features are added especially the group management. In fact, groups are always there but there were no way to manage them. Now you can add, edit, delete groups, and add members to them, right from the Dashboard.
