Drupal is a PHP-based open-source content management system (CMS). It contains an easy-to-use modular framework system, which makes the creation of all types of websites a breeze. The users can use Drupal in order to create websites of all types and genres ranging from personal sites to forums and social networking websites.

The program itself automates various features dealing with all other CMS such as user registration, customizing design and layout and blogging system. Other functions can also be added to the website by using dozens of freely available add-on modules created by the Drupal community. The Drupal interface suits both novice and advanced users.

Drupal can run on a web server which supports PHP, Apache/IIS and MySQL/PostgreSQL. In the new version 6.6, some bugs were fixed, as well as the critical security vulnerabilities. Thus, Drupal helps its users to create dynamic websites easily and quickly, althout being behind other PHP-based Content Management Systems in terms of speed - compared to Joomla, for example.
