    • Drupal is a free and open source content management system written in PHP and distributed under the GNU General Public License.
    • Drupal is used as a back-end system for at least 1% of all websites worldwide ranging from personal blogs to larger corporate and political sites. It is also used for knowledge management and business collaboration.
  • 3. History
    • Drupal became an open source project in 2001. Drupal is an English rendering of the Dutch word “druppel”, which means “drop” .
    • The name drupal was taken from the now-defunct website, whose code slowly evolved into Drupal.

    • The standard release of Drupal is known as Drupal core and it can be used as multi user blogs, an internet forum, community website etc.
  • 5. Drupal core
    • Drupal core is the stock installation of Drupal, which can be optionally extended by third-party contributions.
    • In its default configuration, a Drupal website's content can be contributed by either registered or anonymous users and is made accessible to web visitors by a variety of selectable criteria.

    • As the set up for a new machine to do drupal development often takes a lot of time. To avoid this problem there is automated installation process which just takes hardly twenty minutes to install. The three main steps are:-
    • Setup Lamp Server
    • Setup Drush
    • Setup Eclipse
  • 8. Criticism
    • Drupal has some criticism also and these are listed below.
    • Usability: Some aspects of Drupal's administration interface can be confusing and intimidating, particularly for new administrators.
    • Learning curve: Some users have described Drupal as being fairly difficult to master.
  • 9. Contd …
    • Backward compatibility: Drupal's designers have decided that, in terms of programming, backward compatibility may be sacrificed with each major revision.
    • Performance: In 2008, performance tests between Drupal 6.1 and Joomla 1.5 demonstrated that Drupal's Web pages were delivered "significantly faster" than those of Joomla. Despite this, there persists a popular view that Drupal is slow
