A little of history
Dragonfly CMS is a powerful, feature-rich,
Open Source content management system originally based on PHP-Nuke 6.5.
Since the early "CPG-Nuke CMS" days, we paid close attention to security, performance, scalability, efficiency and reliability.
Subsequent development of DragonflyCMS marked yet another exciting milestone in our history.
The minimum requirements are
MySQL 4.1 or PostgreSQL 7.
Apache 1.3, IIS5, Raiden and others.
MySQL 5 or PostgreSQL 8.
Latest version of the web server used.
At least one image manipulation software: GD 2, ImageMagick or netPBM.
Why Dragonfly CMS
We maintain a high
level of security and a slow release cycle. So that you spend time managing your site,
not patching or updating.
