Joomla is an open source platform on which Web sites and applications can be created. It is a content management system (CMS) which connects your site to a MySQLi, MySQL, or PostgreSQL database in order to make content management and delivery easier on both the site manager and the visitor.

Joomla’s primary focus has been on usability and extensibility since its initial release in 2005.

It is a cause that the project has been the recipient of numerous awards, including being a three-time recipient of the PACKT Open Source Content Management System Award.
