How does CMS work?

CMS provides its users with a simple GUI (Graphical User Interface) like Microsoft Word, through which we are able to upload content to our website easily.

CMS is designed by experienced programmers. In this, collections of many functions are made for each work, that works automatically or by the instruction of the user.

For example, if you want to upload an image on your website, how will you do this work without CMS? You will have to go to the server and upload your image via FTP to the appropriate folder in the database.

But you can do the same thing by CMS in just a few seconds. Actually, it goes like this: When we select the image and click on the upload button, the function related to it will be executed in the backend and our image will be automatically saved in the database.

In the same way, functions are made for every work, there are some functions which are executed automatically, like if you have written a post and schedule it, then it will automatically publish your post at the specified time.

The content management system has two parts:

  1. Content Management Application (CMA): This CMA is responsible for creating and managing your content. It works by storing the data or content you input on the database.
  2. Content Delivery Application (CDA): Its job is to extract data from the database and show it to the visitors of the website.
These two parts together make your work easier.
