Ametys CMS is a multifaceted Java-based web “factory” that powers more than 30,000 websites around the world. Out of the box, Ametys can help you build websites, blogs, portals and corporate wikis – all on the same server. Ametys will help you to get down to the business of building large-scale websites involving hundreds of contributors. A plugin directory is also available to extend its capabilities with things like calendars, social media plugin, widgets, newsletters, UGC, forms, comments feed, and more.
Bitnami Virtual Machines contain a minimal Linux operating system with Ametys installed and configured. This enables you to run the application without actually installing it on your computer. It's completely isolated from other software installed on your machine and makes an ideal sandbox for your project.
Using the Bitnami Virtual Machine image requires hypervisor software such as VMware Player or VirtualBox. Both of these hypervisors are available free of charge. After installing your preferred hypervisor, download and extract the Bitnami Virtual Machine by following the instructions in our getting started guide for VMware or VirtualBox.
