What is WordPress?

WordPress is a web publishing system (a.k.a. content management system) written in PHP and backed by a MySQL database. WordPress is used to manage frequently-updated Web content, especially Weblogs. It is distributed under the GNU General Public License and is available free of charge.

The great thing about WordPress is that its built on open source technologies. Technology known as LAMP. Lamp is a free software bundle that includes Linux, Apache Web Server, Mysql DB, and PHP, and sometimes Python, or Perl.

All of the software we will recommend in the online curriculum will be LAMP based.
