WordPress is a Free and Open Source (FOSS) content management system (CMS) built with PHP and MySQL. It runs on a web server, typically provided by a hosting service.
WordPress has a plugin-based architecture and a templating system. An April 2016 survey found that it was used by more than 26.4% of the top 10 million websites. 60 million websites running WordPress makes it the most popular blogging system.
WordPress was originally a fork of another CMS called b2/cafelog. It is licensed under the terms of GPLv2 or later.

The license of WordPress’s competitor Movable Type changed in 2004, which caused many users to switch to WordPress. The Open Source CMS MarketShare Report found in October 2009 that WordPress had greater brand strength than any other Open Source CMS.
In January 2015, more than 23.3% of the top 10 million websites used WordPress, and in February 2016 was used by 25.8% of all websites.
