Mambo Open Source/Server-side scripting
This article explains the concept of server side scripting, which is a key element in mambo.
What is server side scripting?[edit | edit source]
Server side scripting, on the opposite, keeps all the scripts on the server, and they are executed there. In this case, mambo is the script. Basically, the client sends a request to the server. The server, with mambo installed receives this request, and use the scripts on the server to create the page that the user has requested. Then, a finished version of the results of this program is sent to the user, with no scripts in it (except from the client side scripts that might follow with a mambo site).
