Designed to be light but powerful, Chyrp is powered by PHP and has a very powerful theme and extension engines, so you can personalize it however you want. The code is well-documented, and it has a very strong structure that's loosely based on the MVC design pattern.
You can easily update your application from inside the cPanel.
We use mod_security to add an extra layer of security on top of your web application.
With TrueHoster, you get the same application and configuration regardless of the hosting you are deploying Chyrp to. This makes it easy to migrate between different servers using cPanel.
