What is Joomla?

Published on December 9, 2020
What is Joomla?

Joomla is a highly customizable, free and open source web content management system (CMS) used to publish web content.

Written in PHP and based on a Model-View-Controller (MVC) application framework, Joomla connects sites to a MySQL or PostgreSQL database for content management and focuses on usability and extensibility for its users through its platform.

We also offer a 1-Click App to explore, OpenLiteSpeed Joomla.
