What is Backdrop CMS and how to install on a VPSie (VPS Server)

Backdrop CMS is an easy, lightweight, and easy-to-use Content Management System for building professional sites.#

Backdrop CMS Logo

Backdrop is a Content Management System. A CMS is a database-driven website that enables people to log into, and with consent, allows them to edit almost any page. Backdrop CMS can be used to make just about any website. Utilize Backdrop CMS for all from a single administrator’s blog site to a complicated, multi-role, business e-commerce platform. The Backdrop is the perfect match for comprehensive businesses, non-profit, educational, government or company sites.

Backdrop CMS is a tool for building sites. Backdrop’s heart is packed full of shared attributes that 80% of all websites will utilize. Backdrop’s world of Add-Ons can be used to meet fewer standard requirements. The CMS Backdrop can be easily extended with the inclusion of modules (that alter the way it functions), themes (that change how it looks), and designs (that alter where material can be placed on a page).

Backdrop CMS is a fork of Drupal. The Backdrop is Steam modernized. Backdrop’s founders and early contributors saw the profound changes coming into Drupal 8 and met the need to maintain and enhance this superb software with an established track record of success. By providing a simple upgrade from Drupal 7, Backdrop will be the most affordable following measure for sites running on Drupal 7 today.

Backdrop CMS is non-profit. The Backdrop is a project of the Software Freedom Conservancy. Software Freedom Conservancy is a not-for-profit charity that helps promote, enhance, develop, and defend Free, Libre, and Open-Source Software (FLOSS) projects. To donate, please visit the Contribute page.
