When you are succes for downloading PHP-Nuke; you will face to Francisco Burzi ( welcome note, therefore you will realy know what about PHP-Nuke is :
"Welcome to PHP-Nuke!

First of all, thanks a lot to download this software, I hope that you can enjoy it.

PHP-Nuke is free software, released under GNU GPL Licence version 2.0 (see COPYING file for details)

PHP-Nuke is the result of many years administrating a news site called Linux Preview ( First, around August 1998, I wrote my own code in Perl called NUKE and used it for about 1 year,then my site goes big, so I needed a more powerfull system and decided to use Slash, the same used in Slashdot site. It's good but you realy need to know Perl to modify it, need too many modules, need to load
a damn daemon that sucks all your CPU power. My Pentium III just appears to be a 386 each minute the daemon make its work. Well, then I discovered Thatware, a good project to have a news site under PHP. I learned PHP in less than a week and nitiate to modify it. There are too many mods to mention, it was practicaly a rewrite. I added some cool stuff, deleted some others and after more than 380 hours of hard work in 3 weeks! PHP-Nuke was born.

On August 17, 2000 I sold to and now I have all the time to dedicate to the development of PHP-Nuke. From January 2001 to January 2002, PHP-Nuke has been financially supported by MandrakeSoft, the folks that made Mandrake Linux. This gave me and PHP-Nuke a lot of oxigen and made possible a lot of stuff.

Now, I'm alone with this killer project. There is a lot of help from the people that uses and develop modules and themes. Now, is a big site with a lot of users and helpful information for any user around the world. There is also a strong user's community sites in almost any language you can imagine. Just go to and enjoy this great community!

For installation instructions, go and read INSTALL file, also remember to read CREDITS file to know from where comes the things. The TODO file is the list of features that I'll add in future versions, read it also.

Please, enjoy PHP-Nuke and remember that this is free GPL software and comes without any warranty and without technical support, so please don't email me asking how to make this or that, I'll ignore that type of emails. PHP-Nuke isn't perfect, but your suggestions and feedback can help all us to have a very well done portal system!

PS: Sorry for my English, I'm not english spoken guy. Also, remember I receive
too many Emails, so I can't answer to all you, but for sure I'll read all
Emails I receive.
