Facts of Drupal – PHP Open Source CMS

Drupal was originally written by Dries Buytaert and it became an open source project in 2001. Drupal is an English rendering of the Dutch word “druppel”, which means “drop”. The name was taken from the now-defunct Drop.org website, whose code slowly evolved into Drupal. Buytaert wanted to call the site “dorp” (Dutch for “village”) for its community aspects, but made a typo when checking the domain name and thought it sounded better.
