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
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 (exept from the client side scripts that might follow with a mambo site).
