Mambo is a web content management system that allows you to create professional looking sites without any prior experience or programming knowledge. The control panel is user-friendly and intuitive while the basic requirements allow you to find suitable hosting services without any problems. While Mambo can be modified or extended to provide this style of a site this is not the goal of the project. Mambo is aimed at the more squarely at corporate websites or sites for small to medium businesses, families or personal sites.
As mentioned above is Mambo a free content management system software that allows you to create and manage websites through a simple web interface. The fact that it's so easy to use is one of its biggest reasons for being so popular. Caching, templating techniques and a robust API are other reasons to why millions of people love it. Mambo is written with the PHP language and it uses the MySQL database – yet again nothing fancy. One could say that they follow the expression “if it isn’t broke, don't try to fix it”.
To get initiated on mambo hosting, your computer should have PHP (as a minimum the 4.5 version) and MySQL (if possible 5.x version). You can then easily subscribe to a commercial website hosting service like Site Ground to work as the server of your website. Many commercial website hosting services conduct you throughout the installation procedure and give you with additional characteristics such as email accounts, databases and limitless disk storage space and data transfer as well.
The biggest advantage of Mambo is the fact that you do not need to have any knowledge of web programming – the page editor that is included in the installation, allowing you to insert text, images and links to other websites in the same way you do that in a word processor – no need to look for your host settings and upload files using FTP. When you are done, just click the Save and Publish buttons, and the page will appear online!
