Movable Type is Six Apart's flagship blog software product, launched in 2001. Today, this robust social publishing platform powers the websites and blogs of many of the world's largest media companies, Fortune 100 businesses, small and medium sized businesses, and power bloggers. Movable Type is a fully integrated, scalable, proven social publishing platform upon which to build highly interactive websites, blogs and social networks.

This open source version of Movable Type was designed as an extensible open platform that software developers can use to build and develop websites and blogs. Fast, strong and secure, Movable Type is the most robust open source blog software on the market. The core Movable Type platform has API's that make it easy to add new features and functionality. To see a sampling of the many plugins available, visit the Plugin Directory at plugins.movabletype.org.

The JumpBox provides a basic installation of Movable Type setup with a single blog on the root URL of the system. It's highly recommended that you keep that blog and customize it for your needs rather than starting from scratch. From there you can add other blogs fairly easily.

This JumpBox is based on the 1.7 JumpBox Platform and includes a backup system that supports archiving the state of the JumpBox to NFS, Windows File Shares and Amazon S3.

What is a JumpBox?

A JumpBox makes using server software quick and simple. It packages an application's software, dependencies, and application data into a single virtual computer that enables you to focus on the application, not the details of getting the application to run.
