This is a summary of the various terms I use on my site.


WordPress-MU was a fork of the main WordPress[/glosary] code that allowed multiple installations to exist within one database and be managed from a central management too. As of WordPress version 3.0, WP-MU was merged with the main WP codebase and renamed "Multisite".


Usually, LAMP stands for "Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP" and signifies the standard software stack that most sites I develop are based upon. Sometimes, the "P" can stand for other scripting languages such as Python or Perl. Further, there are other variations like MAMP (deployed on Mac OS X operating system instead of Linux), or LAPP (the MySQL database engine is replaced with PostgreSQL), etc.

Content Management System

A Content Management System, or CMS, is a tool that allows a user, or group of users, the ability to modify, organize, and classify the content of a website.


WordPress is an advanced Content Management System that allows end-users to easily manage most of the content, layout, and structure of a website via a simple administrative back-end. It is a highly extensible system with many free themes and functional plugins available.
