Xoops.org recently recovered from a hackers attack to its server. Unfortunately the Documentation Site is still closed and documentation is still not available to the general user.

I have decided to host on My personal website some backup files that I had saved during the documentation editing process. This is only a small selection of the full documentation, but covers some of the essential reading and guides for Xoops CMS. We hope to restore the full documentation files as soon as possible.
