Requirements and installation

Bear CMS is a combination of client software that runs on your servers and a cloud service. Moving the CMS tools to the cloud minimizes your server requirements.

Your servers requirements

A web server running PHP 7.1+ is enough to run the Bear CMS client. The popular choices (and provided by most host companies) are Apache and NGINX.


A account is required for registering your website at our service.
