Is anyone using the PicoCMS app to successfully host a website?

I’m curious if anyone is successfully hosting a site through the Nextcloud app version of PicoCMS.

Example, tips, suggestions, links welcome!

I’m going to follow this thread, because I’m interested in tips and suggestions as well.

I was actually going to use PicoCMS, but unfortunately some HTML5 tags are not yet supported by the Nextcloud app (PicoCMS itself supports them):

Furthermore I struggled to successfully install themes. My attempts so far always resulted in broken CSS and non-functioning navigation (3 themes that I tried).

With simple and standard pages (didn’t try sub pages so far) it works fine however.


I have managed to get a site working on Ubuntu 16.04/Apache with the basic default theme. I had to upgrade PHP to 7.2 - this might help

The following may not be complete. Nor may it all be necessary, but FWIW they are the steps I’ve taken to get up and running:

add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/php
add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/apache2

apt install php libapache2-mod-php
apt-get install php7.2-mysql php7.2-curl php7.2-json php7.2-cgi  php7.2 libapache2-mod-php7.2
apt-get install php7.2-redis
apt-get install php7.2-dom

a2dismod php7.0
a2enmod php7.2

update-alternatives --set php /usr/bin/php7.2

# maybe also need
apt-get install php7.2-zip
a2enmod proxy_fcgi setenvif
a2enconf php7.2-fpm

systemctl restart apache2
