For what is it?

Lots of questions and some answers

Have you ever tried to realize a website as fast as possible? Do you have tons of content for the web that must be published by totally unexperienced people – or do you are such totally unexperienced user? Are you a professional website developer and are you absolutely bored in supervising the content of your customers? Do you like the separation between the website layout and the website content but do not know how this could be realized? Do you want to be free in changing the website layout without re-editing the whole content stuff? Do you want to have reusable images on your website and do you do not want to know something about the preparation of images for your website? Do you want to publish and store files on your website? Are there any EPS, AI, PS or PDF file that should be simply integrated as resizable web image? Yes! OK! Every question above gives you the answer what phpwcms possibly can do for you.

phpwcms is an open source web application using PHP, a widely-used general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for web development and can be embedded into HTML. All content except converted images and uploaded files are stored in a MySQL database, the world's most popular open source database. It uses ImageMagick and GhostScript or PHP's GD1|2 capabilities for creating thumbnails and resizing images. ImageMagick is a collection of tools and libraries offered to read, write, and manipulate an image in many image formats while GhostScript is an interpreter for the PostScript language and for PDF. GD in phpwcms supports JPG, GIF and PNG as source image format only (often GIF is disabled by providers).
