Drupal is a Web content management (WCM) system. It provides a simple, intuitive interface that allows an individual or a community of users to easily publish, manage, and organize a wide variety of content on a Web site without programming skills. Drupal is an extremely powerful system that rewards the users who climb the fairly steep learning curve. The JumpBox for Drupal lowers the learning curve a little by giving you a Drupal installation that’s ready to run in just minutes, allowing you to focus on using Drupal rather than getting it installed. This JumpBox is for the Drupal 6.x series of releases. A separate JumpBox is also available for Drupal 5.x.
Movable Type is a powerful, multi-user blogging platform. It's widely used as a business blogging tool thanks to the ease with which you can create multiple blog sites. It has a large community and many add-ons available. It's written in Perl and tends to be a bit difficult to install, unless of course you use the JumpBox. This JumpBox provides a basic installation of Movable Type setup with a single blog on the root URL of the system. It's highly recommended that you keep that blog and customize it for your needs rather than starting from scratch. From there, you can add other blogs fairly easily. This JumpBox is based on the 1.1 JumpBox Platform and includes a backup system that supports archiving the state of the JumpBox to NFS, Windows file shares, and Amazon S3.
