The Plainkit

Kirby's Plainkit is the most minimal setup you can get started with.

so it's perfect to use this as a starting point for your own project.

The Panel

process for your first user, when you visit the panel
for the first time.


Kirby does not require a database, which makes it very easy to
install. Just copy Kirby's files to your server and visit the
URL for your website in the browser.

Please check if the invisible .htaccess file has been
copied to your server correctly


Kirby runs on PHP 5.4+, Apache or Nginx.
