Cms_pico v0.9.5

App Store:

This new app that implements Pico in your Nextcloud is now available on the App Store.
A secure way to provide a “stupidly simple, blazing fast, flat file CMS” to your users so they can create their own sites with a formatted address:

Hand’s up to PhrozenByte from Pico for reviewing and improving the code !

Documentation is available there :

A first version was already released last week, so a small Changelog:


  • new template: empty.
  • replacing PicoNextcloud plugins to an extend of the Pico lib.
  • bugfixes.
  • code cleaning.

Good effort @cult!

Hello, can you explained, please, how use this theme for example with you cms-pico application ?
I can’t use this theme …


Hi, I recently found cms_pico and I liked… except that since I have encryption enabled, I couldn’t get my page working

cms_pico does not support encrypted filesystem

Is there a solution to use it without disabling encryption? That would be great. Thank you.

cms_pico needs to open files without owner’s key, but might work if you setup your encryption with a master key

Have you managed to do this? I also want to do it? if yes how did you add a theme

Hello Ricardo_Santos,

I have follow this wiki:
I have seen your issue Apache configuration difficulty #39
for apache i have just add this line to my site.conf in /etc/apache2/sites-available:

RewriteRule /sites/(.*) https://your.domaine/index.php/apps/cms_pico/pico/$1 [QSA,L]

And restart your apache service

Hi @ludovicis

site.conf? I only have nextcloud.conf
or should I create a new file? I’m confused

If you are on shared hosting or otherwise don’t want to modify the Apache configuration files, you need to follow the instructions related to the .htaccess file.

@krischan thanks

where are the instructions for the htaccess file?

should i change .htaccess file in /var/www/nextcloud or the one in

I think the instructions are not clear for those who are not experts in

Most likely the one in /var/www as the pico_cms sites should be reachable totally independent of nextcloud. But it depends a bit on your exact setting. Could also be /var/www/HTML/ or what ever your webroot is.

The instructions are on the admin setting page of the pico_cms plugin.

I have not change the .htaccess file in /var/www/nextcloud
Ricardo_Santos you have not access to apache configuration file ?

@Krischan I’ve changed the .htaccess but no luck, the site does not load!

I get this
"File not found
The specified document has not been found on the server.
You can click here to return to mysite"


where is the file that you say i should change?

root@nextcloudpi:/etc/apache2# ls -lha

Someone should do a step by step help to install the pico in the nextcloud server

in my linux the directory is /etc/apache2/sites-available/


root@nextcloudpi:/etc/apache2/sites-available# ls -lha
total 28K
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4.0K Nov 29 15:20 .

-rw-r–r-- 1 root root 979 Nov 28 19:50 ncp.conf
-rw-r–r-- 1 root root 646 Nov 29 15:20 nextcloud.conf

I have all these config files
Which one?

I’ve added the lines in nextcloud.conf and it works now! At last…
I’ve used the MOD_REWRITE lines


This is a nice addon, rewrite did noit work for me but proxying worked under Apache.

Btw .htaccess stuff is not clear I think they meant the .htaccess that sits at the root of the server. My NC is not installed at the root for instance, still I tried editing both .htaccess files under root and undernextcloud folder, both methods did not work.
