What am I Downloading?
concrete5 is middleware. It was designed for a LAMP stack but works on Windows webservers running IIS and PHP as well. Check out our System Requirements page for more detailed information.
It is NOT a desktop application you run on your local computer to design a website. If you're comfortable configuring webservers and you want a great free CMS to tinker with, download away. If most of this sounded like greek to you, try an insta-setup on our servers instead and you'll get a copy running in seconds. If you're ready to get started with a fully hosted copy of concrete5, check out our recommended hosting providers offering easy installation options.
