Kilvin CMS

About Kilvin

Kilvin CMS is a content management system built on top of the Laravel framework. The project is currently in a development state and is not ready for use in production. We do not suggest using this for live websites at this time since major architectural changes are still possible, which could break existing functionality.

Installing Kilvin CMS

Server Requirements

  • PHP 7.1 or later with safe mode disabled
  • MySQL 5.5.0 or later, with the InnoDB storage engine installed. MariaDB works too.
  • A web server (Apache, Nginx)
  • OpenSSL PHP Extension
  • PDO PHP Extension
  • Mbstring PHP Extension
  • Tokenizer PHP Extension


  • Insure you have a server meeting the above requirements. Laravel Homestead is a superb development environment for Kilvin CMS.
  • Clone this GitHub repo onto your server.
  • In your terminal, run the following Composer command in your cloned directory to install Kilvin's dependencies: composer create-project --prefer-dist.
  • Permissions. Insure that the following files and directories are writeable on your server. Homestead is set up to allow this automatically:
    • .env
    • ./storage
    • ./templates
  • Create a database for your new site in MySQL/MariaDB.
  • Configure your webserver to make the ./public directory your web root.
  • Direct your browser to the /installer URL on your new site and run the installer. Example:

Multiple Sites

  • Weblogs, Fields, Categories, Statuses, Member Groups, Members, and most preferences are global and NOT site-specific
  • Templates and Stats are Site-specific
  • Member Groups have permissions that allow you to restrict them to only certain Sites, Weblogs, and Statuses
