Joomla Content Management System

What is Joomla?
Joomla is a free open source content management system that allows you to
build websites and other online applications using a web browser and a
connection to the Internet.

The name of Joomla comes from Swahili word jumla means as a whole. The
first release of Joomla (version 1.0) was on September 2005

Where can I download it?
You can download it from
http://www.joomla.org
(approx 2MB). Or you can try
an online demo at
http://demo.joomla.org
(username: admin, password: admin).

To run Joomla you need a web server (Apache), PHP, and 1 MySQL database.
Hosting companies provide an environment to use Joomla for as little as £4 a
month.

What is the main functionality?
Joomla allows you to build and manage websites using the Joomla CMS, a web
browser with a connection to the Internet and with little IT knowledge.

If youve used a word processor such as Microsoft Word youll be comfortable
managing your web content with Joomla. Youll also be able to add images, files
for download and streaming media such as videos and mp3s using Joomlas
WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor (see image below).
