What is Joomla
According to Wikipedia, Joomla is a free and open source content management framework (CMF) for publishing content on the World Wide Web and intranets and a model–view–controller (MVC) Web application framework that can also be used independently.
Joomla is written in PHP, uses object-oriented programming (OOP) techniques (since version 1.5 ) and software design patterns, stores data in a MySQL or (since version 2.5) MS SQL database, and includes features such as page caching , RSS feeds , printable versions of pages, news flashes, blogs , polls , search, and support for language internationalization.
With Joomla, you would be able to run lots of websites, because there are lots of modules and plugins you can make use of. You can use it to run a blog, a download portal and lots more. Why not check it out if you a snoopy webmaster like me, lol.
