What is WordPress?
WordPress is an open source blog tool and publishing platform powered by PHP and MySQL. WordPress can be used for not only blogging posts but also to store static information that can be easily updated like a content management system (CMS). Additionally, it’s easy-to-use, and you need no special skills in web programming or web design or prior experience to use it. Since it’s open source, then you are free to download and use it.
