Performance Characteristics

Asset Management

papaya CMS stores content in relational databases. The following databases are supported:  MySQL, PostgreSQL and SQLite.more

Basic information

As you probably already guessed, we aren't serving up tropical fruit salad, but rather a smart software for your company: papaya CMS, the Open Source CMS for professional use.more

Content Syndication

Your own content can simply be exported as an RSS feed. External content can be embedded via a special module. In addition, the output of external programs can be integrated. Papaya CMS can use e.g. RDF/RSS and any other XML application for exchanging and transferring content. Of course, external database access can be realized.more


The classes contained in the system serve as a programming interface. From this base, any number of other applications and content modules for web pages can be developed.more


Using the Media DB, it is fundamentally possible to upload and administer all file types. Graphics can also be linked into articles and files can be offered for download. Different XML documents can be imported over an XSLT import template.more


Load distribution means there are no limits.  The system can be scaled freely as with any Linux/Unix environment.  Web pages can be stored in a cache (boxes and sidebars) for a programmed timeframe and statically delivered. This reduces the delivery time by a factor of 10 (approx.).more


Using papaya CMS, it is easy to create personalized websites for individual users. Registered Community users receive different, fully configurable access rights that allow access to specific, customizable web sites and content.more


As with any server, it is possible to get usage statistics from the server program’s logfiles. However, using the Statistic Module provides much more detailed statistics and presents the data in a graphic format.more

Roles and Rights

Only the Editor-in-chief is allowed to publish content online? No problem. It makes sense to have a responsible person check content before it goes online. Papaya CMS differentiates between creating articles and publishing them – the first anyone can do, the second only people with authorization. This helps you guarantee the quality of content published on your website.more

Extensible Markup Language

The administration of content in the whole papaya CMS system is based on XML. Pages are delivered in XML by the Page Module and are transformed into the desired output format using the Format template (XSLT Templates). The template language XSLT is an XML application.more
