Management of CMS applications (Content Management Systems)

A content management system or CMS (Content Management SS**ystem) is a tool for web servers that allows the user to create, manage and publish web content without advanced programming knowledge, 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. The most popular are:

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

From SWPanel you have several ways to deploy some content managers:

  • Services Linux Domain in Cloud or Hosting: Activate a CMS application in a matter of minutes from SWPanel.
  • Cloud & Apps**: Create a new Cloud with your preferred CMS 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 both ways.
