In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Pico CMS on an Ubuntu 16.04 VPS. Pico is a lightweight open source CMS written in PHP. Pico is a flat file CMS, so there is no need to use a database and there is no administration back-end. It uses the Twig templating engine for template rendering. It is a cross-platform application and supports all popular operating systems, but this tutorial was written for Ubuntu 16.04 OS. At the time of writing this tutorial, the latest stable version is Pico 1.0.6, and it requires:
- PHP 5.3 or higher
- Apache web server 2.2 or higher with enabled mod_rewrite module
This install guide assumes that Apache is already installed and configured on your virtual server.
