SilverStripe

SilverStripe

SilverStripe is an open source content management system (CMS) and application framework developed by SilverStripe Limited, a company headquartered in Wellington, New Zealand. The system has been in active development for several years now, with the open source version 2.0 released in 2007. Since then, the open source community has contributed to the core project by adding many features and solving problems. SilverStripe provides a powerful and flexible way to manage not only the content of your site, but other features such as blogs, galleries, and events.

Recently, SilverStripe released the highly anticipated version 3.0 of their framework and CMS. Version 3.0 brings with it many improvements and benefits to the core platform. To learn more about the new version of SilverStripe, please watch the release announcement video. By selecting an open source platform like SilverStripe, you can be assured of continued support for the platform not only by the parent company, but also an active community of developers.

SilverStripe requires the PHP scripting language (version 5 or greater), a MySQL database, and is hosted by Praxis Interactive using Apache, the world's most popular web server software. Again, by using open source technologies such as these as the foundation for the CMS and framework, you are given much greater flexibility and choice for continued hosting and development of your site.
