Gone are the days of hand-coding websites. With the many powerful web applications available today, you don’t even need to have scripting knowledge or experience to put together a blog, web store, photo gallery, forum, etc. However, if you are not very technically inclined, it can be quite challenging to install these applications. The multiple problems encountered by website owners would have to do with the complicated manual installation of the web application, setting up the database and configuring the configuration files, etc.
But just because you are non-technie doesn’t mean you have to settle with sub-par static websites. If you are a newbie to installing web applications, Fantastico will be just what you need.
