Gruff Goat relies extensively and supports fully open source software.
Database and logic
Gruff Goat uses MySQL, the world's most popular open source database,
recognized for its speed and reliability.
For logic we use PHP, a widely-used general-purpose scripting language
that is especially suited for Web development.
Gruff Goat also uses Tomcat for Java Server Page deployment.
Majordomo managed email lists are a part of Gruff Goat web hosting
services. Majordomo automates the management
of Internet mailing lists. Commands are sent to Majordomo via email
to handle all aspects of list maintenance. Once a list is set up,
virtually all operations can be performed remotely by email,
requiring no intervention upon the postmaster of the list site.
