Drupal, an easy-going and scalable content management system for any size of project

This open-source CMS is published under GNU general public license. It enables you to create and manage your websites. Contrary to most CMS, Drupal offers a unique management interface directly integrated to the front office. That makes it user-friendly. Very intuitive, this “blocks” interface makes content and modules management easy to pick up.

Innovative and singular operation

The tool Drupal is directed at both novices and expert programmers. You can create a website without having special programming language knowledge such as PHP, HTML or CSS. By its flexibility, Drupal can meet most of the market needs: institutional websites, blog, directory, community, merchant or intranets, everything is possible.

One of Drupal strengths is that modules can interact with each other. The counterpart of this flexibility is complexity; thereby, Drupal usually offers one or several solutions to solve a single problem. Furthermore, the most difficult task is sometimes to find “the” module that better meets your needs. Another point that distinguishes Drupal from other CRM is that both the site and its administration interface are closely linked; administrators can edit their content in the same visual background as the visitor’s one. At first sight, this feature can be confusing but thereafter, it becomes particularly productive and intuitive. As other CMS, the architecture of a Drupal site is based on a particular content model that allow the organization of the information. Drupal uses a node system coupled with a particularly flexible taxonomy.

In order to insure the durability of your website, here are some pieces of advice to secure Drupal:

  • Change your password at the installation, then regularly;
  • Do not share your usernames; do prefer the creation of distinct user accounts;
  • Never give your username and password to someone you do not trust;
  • Do not give the “publisher” role (and even less your FTP access) to someone you do not trust;
  • Install a firewall on your server in order to strengthen the protection;
  • Restrict the loading possibilities and the types of authorized files (only reserve the loading right to trusted users);
  • Regularly update the core and modules;
  • Regularly back up your website and database;
  • Use Drupal security modules such as: Security Review and Acquia Insight (analysis of your website configuration and suggesting methods to correct errors) but also Hacked (information about modified and hacked files) and Diff (compatible to Hacked giving the information on the way the filed had been modified);
  • Add a prefix to your Drupal database tables;
  • Write in safe PHP code;
  • Create a list-modif file (last created and modified files list);
  • Secure thanks to .htaccess file.
