<h2>Welcome to BackendPro</h2>
<p><strong>BackendPro</strong> is a website control panel made for developers. So why is it different?
Not only does it provide a good solid base for a website with an auth library, but
it also incorporates many features which are needed and help during development.
<strong>BackendPro</strong> is not a CMS but it offers many features a CMS does without it trying
to construct your website frontend, which lets be honest is custom to each application.
So I hope if you use this you will see why I created it, purely to save me time getting
the basics of a website working fast.</p>

<h2>Why BackendPro?</h2>

<h2>Where to Start</h2>
<p>Well if you haven't done already head over to the <a href="http://backendpro.assembla.com/spaces/backendpro/documents">BackendPro development</a> page 
and grab a copy of the latest version. There is also the <a href="http://backendpro.assembla.com/spaces/backendpro/trac_subversion_tool">SVN repository</a> but I do 
not advise this if you don't already understand the <strong>BackendPro</strong> system.</p>
<p>Next have a read of the <a href="general/install.html">Installation Process</a> or if you are upgrading, the <a href="general/upgrade.html">Upgrade Process</a>.
If you find any bugs please do <a href="http://www.assembla.com/spaces/backendpro/support/tickets">create a ticket</a> and please direct any questions to the <a href="http://codeigniter.com/forums/viewthread/76078/">CodeIgniter
