Management of CMS applications (Content Managers)

A content manager, or CMS (Content Management System) is a tool for web servers that allows the user to create, manage and publish web content without having advanced knowledge of programming, since from its interface the content of the website is controlled, maintained and published. As its name suggests, it is a system that allows us to manage content.

Depending on our needs, we will choose one or another content manager. These are some of the most popular:

  • Wordpress: Creation of web pages. Very popular for blogs.
  • PrestaShop: Creation of online stores.
  • Moodle: A great gestor for education.

From SW Panel you have several ways to deploy some content managers:

  • Services Domain in Cloud or Hosting: Activates a CMS application in a matter of minutes from SW Panel.
  • Cloud & Apps: Create a new Cloud with your preferred manager pre-installed, or even connect to the Cloud to install yourself the one that best suits your needs.

We explain below how to do it in both ways.

Install CMS application in Hosting service or Linux Domain in Cloud

Access SW Panel and go to the corresponding service Dashboard:

In the CMS Application Management section you can install the content manager of your choice:

From this same section, you can uninstall the CMS application.

The next step is to perform the initial configuration of the selected CMS application, we explain it below.
