Introduction - top

Tiger CMS is an advanced automated system for creating and updating web presentation. This is a web PHP application based on CodeIgniter PHP framework. Web design is fully automated and does not need knowledge of these programming languages. Tiger CMS is based on modules and bootstrap blocks, so that the appearance of the page and posts depends only on the creativity of the user. However to create more complex modules you will need to know the basics of PHP. Making modules is possible directly from the software or the application code. An integral part of the project is a mobile phone application that uses data specified from CMS for creation of content. Watch video instructions and make sure how easy it is to create quality web presentation.

Installation - top

With Built In Auto Installer, Installing Tiger CMS is very easy and simple.

To install an application on a local computer you need to install some of the current software: XAMPP, WAMP, LAMP or MAMP. This software contains all of the elements that are necessary for the normal operation of the application. After the installation you need to create a database by phpMyAdmin. To install the server you can immediately access phpMyAdmin. After opening the starting page to phpMyAdmin, click on "New" which is located in the upper left corner of the page. It opens a new page where you write the name of a base (such as "cms_install ') and then click on CREATE. After a successful database creation no additional adjustments are required.

Instalation phpMyAdmin

After created database, you must run the installation wizard of CMS (http://yoursite). As you can see in the picture, first you need to enter the name of the created database, and then, to connect to the database, enter the parameters user name and password. The field "Host Name" is the name of our host. After all fields are correctly filled in, click on "Install".
