SilverStripe is an open source intuitive content management system and flexible framework. This combination provides both developers and content editors the tools to create innovative web projects.
Bitnami Virtual Machines contain a minimal Linux operating system with SilverStripe 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.
