Welcome to Dragonfly CMS! Why switch to Dragonfly?
  • What is Dragonfly CMS?
    Dragonfly CMS is a powerful, feature-rich, Open Source content management system which was based on PHP-Nuke 6.5 in the "CPG-Nuke CMS" days. We have spent over a year developing Dragonfly CMS, paying close attention to security and reliability. The release of Dragonfly marks yet another exciting milestone in our history.

  • What programming language does Dragonfly use?
    Our software is written in PHP—the fastest programming language spreading the net today, combined with your choice of either MySQL or PostgreSQL (experimental).

  • What does my server require?
    The preferred setup is to have:
    - PHP 4.3 or higher.
    - MySQL 4.0.x in versions up to (not 5.x)
    - MySQL 4.1+ and 5.x, PostgreSQL 7.4+ and 8.x are supported from current version 9.1.x
    - Apache 1.3 or higher (other httpd clients are also supported like IIS5/6, Raiden, etc.)
    - GD 2, ImageMagick, netPBM or any other image manipulation software

  • Why Dragonfly CMS?
    Unlike other content management systems on the net, we maintain a high level of security, so that you spend time managing your site, not patching it. Managing your site is easy with our powerful line of tools which include a debugging system, BBCode support in many areas, a built-in photo gallery, and a derivative of phpBB 2.0.x.
