An AWS product TYPO3 - The Enterprise Open Source CMS by Miri Infotech. TYPO3 is a free and open source web content management system written in PHP. It is released under the GNU General Public License. It can run on several web servers, such as Apache or IIS, on top of many operating systems, among them Linux, Microsoft Windows, FreeBSD, Mac OS X and OS/2.


TYPO3 is, along with Drupal, Joomla! and WordPress, among the most popular content management systems worldwide, however it is more widespread in Europe than in other regions. The biggest market share can be found in German-speaking countries.

TYPO3 is credited to be highly flexible. It can be extended by new functions without writing any program code. Also, the software is available in more than 50 languages and has a built-in localization system, therefore supports publishing content in multiple languages. Due to its features, scalability and maturity, TYPO3 is used to build and manage websites of different types and size ranges, from small sites for individuals or nonprofit organizations to multilingual enterprise solutions for large corporations. According to the ability to support a corporate environment, it is classified as an enterprise level content management system.

We are launching a product which will configure and publish TYPO3, an open source Content Management solution which is embedded pre-configured tool with LAMP and ready-to-launch AMI on Amazon EC2 that contains TYPO3, Apache, MySQL, Linux, PHP (LAMP).
Features of TYPO3
  • Ease of Use for Content Editors
  • Rich Text Editor (RTE): Multiple RTEs with Microsoft Word-like icons, support for Win/IE, Mac/Safari and Mozilla Firefox on all platforms; WYSIWYG editors are highly configurable - buttons and CSS styles can be added and removed.
  • Intuitive UI: The site is organized and displayed in the backend in a page-tree format that duplicates the structural layout of the site. File management functions are displayed in a directory-tree format that duplicates the directory structure of the installation. This makes finding pages and files easy for content editors.
  • Spell Checker: Spellchecker is built into the Rich Text Editor.
  • Configurable UI Levels: Customizable/Skinnable backend interface for editors (expert or newbie interfaces); Help icons are located beside most functions.
  • Undo / History: TYPO3 CMS has an unlimited history. You can undo any change you make on the site.

TYPO3 is a free and open source web content management system written in PHP. It is released under the GNU General Public License. It can run on several web servers, such as Apache or IIS, on top of many operating systems, among them Linux, Microsoft Windows, FreeBSD, Mac OS X and OS/2.


Development is open and available to any member of the TYPO3 community. All fixes and improvements are done through pull requests to the code. This code is open source and publicly available.


  • TYPO3 is not easy to install and set up. It takes time to learn to use it, it definitely takes more time than you would need for WordPress or Joomla!. That's why it's not recommended for beginners, but for more advanced programmers.
  • Modularity and expendability often means bigger demands on server parameters. This certainly is the case. Still, if the website is not too large and there will not be thousands of visitors, there should be no problems, at least not in the beginning.
  • While for editors content management in TYPO3 is simple, and administrators are required to have somewhat more of the script's know-how, it's a hard nut to crack for programmers.
