An introduction to the Elxis world.
Elxis is an open source content management system (CMS) written in PHP programming language. It was born on December 2005 and since then it is used by thousands of people in all over the world. Elxis is famous for its stability and security, for the well tested extensions, for the multi-lingual features and the unique ideas we have implemented in it through these years many of which copied by other CMSs later.
With Elxis you can easily build small, medium or large scale web sites without the need of having programming skills (although basic knowledge of HTML/CSS is recommended for best results). You can create news portals, personal blogs, online magazines, business sites, online shops, community portals and more.
Except Elxis, you will need some place to host your site online (although you can install Elxis in your local computer too). Your hosting provider should provide you a web server such as Apache, lighttpd or nginx, able to run PHP scripts and a database such as MySQL or PostgreSQL. We recommend you to pick Linux as the web server operating system. Any Linux distribution is fine. For business web sites we strongly recommend new users to assign the build of their web site to a highly trained professional. You will save time and get the best result.
Elxis is been developed by the Elxis Team, a group of friends pashioned with the open source software. There are no big companies behind Elxis, there are no sponsors, advertizers, or hidden financial interests. Elxis is independent, a pure open source project. For legal purposes Elxis is represented by Ioannis Sannos, the core developer of Elxis, located in Athens, Greece.
