Known CMS is a PHP based content management system (CMS) that can be installed on shared hosting or a VPS. In this post, you will find my experience with this CMS, including installation, configuration any quirks, and final takeaways.
I learnt about Known CMS through the list of Content Management Systems on Wikipedia. In a way, it is a re learning. Here’s why:
Over the past two or three years, I check this list once every six months. My main interest is to learn about any new developments in the world of CMS. This includes, but not limited to:
- Updates to existing CMS’es
- New additions or deletion from the list
- Any projects that have come back from the dead, figuratively speaking. HTMLy, (or TypesetterCMS) for example.
The last time I had checked, Known CMS had not been updated for quite some time. Today, I was pleasantly surprised to see an update from June 15, 2020.
