Hosting and CMS

Hosting and CMS

We understand that Temple University's web content managers are busy, multitasking individuals. You teach class and counsel students in addition to the responsibility of maintaining a website. A content management system (CMS) should be user-friendly even for the most technically challenged. That's why Temple University chose Acquia Drupal 7 as its official CMS. 

Drupal 7 CMS

What does Drupal mean for you?

  • Easily update your website from any computer with an internet connection
  • No FTP needed to push changes live
  • Ability to make edits that could not be done on our legacy CMS

Acquia Network Hosting

Temple University's Drupal 7 websites are hosted externally on Acquia, a managed cloud environment. Acquia provides a scalable, high-performance hosting infrastructure specifically for Drupal 7 sites. Learn more about Acquia Managed Cloud

Acquia Tier Structure

Temple's Acquia hosting consists of two separate production environments called tiers. Please note that only websites that are built in Drupal 7 and adhere to the module list can be hosted on Acquia. Find out more about Temple's Acquia tier structure.

Approved Modules List

Temple University websites hosted on tiers 1 and 2 of the Acquia network must use an approved set of modules to ensure the stability of the network. Learn about Temple's approved modules list

Contribute CMS

Adobe Contribute is Temple University's legacy CMS. Legacy websites are hosted internally on servers maintained by Computer Services.

Many users across the university continue to make website updates using Adobe Contribute. Web Communications will continue to provide maintenance updates as requested for clients whose websites use the legacy CMS. 

Drupal Migration

You probably want to migrate your existing Temple University website into Acquia Drupal 7. Our goal is to redesign and migrate websites from Contribute into Acquia Drupal 7 with a multi-year plan. Learn how you can start a project.
