Quate CMS

  The Quate CMS is a simple, user-friendly, flexible and customizable website content management system. It is known to run on any server with recent PHP (4.3.x+) and MySQL versions. The Quate CMS is released under the GNU General Public License.


  • Free and open source. Licensed under the GPL.
  • Clean and simple article URL addresses for pages.
  • Fast interface - not bloatware.
  • Extensions engine to provide additional features when needed.
  • PHP 4 and 5 intercompatible. Also operating system intercompatible.
  • Supports multilingual pages for websites that need different pages with different translations.
  • Customizable - The main Quate CMS interface is so simple, it is difficult to tell if website is using the Quate CMS. They don't require a link back to theirs site. It's your site, not theirs.



There are only a few server requirements to run the QuateCMS:

  • PHP 4.3 or higher.
  • MySQL 3 or higher.

If you do not know if you meet the requirements, the QuateCMS installer will run checks before starting the installation process.

On the client side, they highly recommend you to have javascript enabled (most users do not have to worry about this). Additionally, they recommend a web browser that supports image alpha transparency. Most recent web browser satisfy this. Again, these are only recommendations.
