2.Building Websites with Drupal



Drupal is one of the best Open Source CMS and Blog applications. It enables you to easily create and manage your news- and articles-based website. Drupal is free to download and use, and is suitable both for small and large dynamic content sites.

Drupal is a free and open source modular framework and content management system (CMS) written in the programming language PHP. Like many modern CMSs, Drupal allows the system administrator to create and organize content, customize the presentation, automate administrative tasks, and manage site visitors and contributors.

Drupal is sometimes described as a “Content Management Framework”as its capabilities extend from content management to enabling a wide range of services and transactions. Although Drupal does offer a sophisticated programming interface, basic web site installation and administration can be accomplished with no programming.

Drupal runs in many environments, including Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Solaris 10, OpenSolaris and any platform that supports either the Apache (version 1.3+), or IIS (version IIS5+) Web server and the PHP language (version 4.3.5+). Drupal requires a database such as MySQL or PostgreSQL to store content and settings.

This book gives you insights in the techniques and technologies for building successful websites and online communities.

You will learn about this powerful free software’s ins and outs, become a community-building expert and examine successful Drupal sites. Get this book if you’re a web professional, developer, designer, and decision maker interested in applying Drupal knowledge.
