Two providers of integrated solutions: ocPortal, an open-source Content Management System, and Bitnami, which makes "stacks" for easy installation of web applications, have partnered to release a "stack" for ocPortal 4.1.10. Jointly developed/tested by both companies, users of almost any background can now easily download and run ocPortal on the "big three" operating systems, Windows, Linux, and Mac.
A flexible Web CMS, ocPortal has an emphasis on building online communities, and dynamic and interactive websites. ocPortal provides features for blogging, running a forum, providing downloads, hosting galleries, serving your own databases, eCommerce, and much more. Everything is customizable, done to high standards, and easy to use.
Bitnami has done a fantastic job integrating every major component (Apache, PHP, MySQL, ocPortal) seamlessly, topped off with a straightforward, intuitive installer that makes the entire process a breeze.
Bitnami's "Stacks" page showcases dozens of web-based applications. After choosing "ocPortal" and an operating system, the all-in-one installer asks for basic site info (site name, username, password, e-mail) and configures every necessary component to work properly.
Bitnami represents the next step forward in software distribution by empowering virtually anyone to utilize new web technologies on their own computers.
