After reading many blog post about Mura CMS, Yesterday I have downloaded and installed it in my system for to explore its features. Mura CMS is really awesome and having tons of features included within it which makes building, deploying and maintaining web sites and its contents very easier. Apart from its excellent features and functionalities Mura CMS is open source and Free.

Mura comes with two types of downloads one is Mura Standard which needs Adobe ColdFusion or Railo server installed with a back end database like MySQL or MSSQL in our system and another one is Mura Express which runs on our machine without any server requirements. Installing and setting up Mura CMS is super easy which will not take more than 5 minutes. The installations steps are clearly mentioned in the download itself but for showing it simplicity here are the quick installation steps.

  • Download Mura Standard from here
  • Copy the contents of "www" directory from the downloaded Mura CMS and put that into your systems webroot.
  • Create a new database ex: muradb and Create a data source connection in CF Admin ex:muradsn and connect it to the muradb database.
  • Browse to the URL of installed Mura site and follow the steps.

That's it we have completed the installations and Mura is ready for to create your web sites. Go and download Mura CMS without any waiting.

i agree, installing and using Mura is very easy. once you get comfortable with where things are and finding the "plugin" points, extending Mura becomes much easier too.
