I am looking for a cheap or free version management software for me and my friends to work on. We are working on a small project (website) the only problem is we need to be able to keep track of changed made by each other.

Any suggestions?

your question is a little generic ( you mentioned nothing about the content you want to track, how many are you, needs for permissioning etc.)

so the answer is also a little generic, free source control systems can be:
CVS - the most wide spread open source source control system http://www.nongnu.org/cvs/

SubVersion - the "succesor" of CVS from http://subversion.tigris.org/

and I know that Perforce - http://www.perforce.com/ is giving their system to open source projects for free

and here is a link for a more detailed review:

good luck

If you are working in Visual Studio it includes a copy of Visual Source Safe (VSS).  We found it to be quite useful

If it is a small, local project (all people on the same lan)
then VSS is the most convenient.

The Ultimate Checklist to Optimize Your Website

Websites are getting bigger and complicated by the day. Video, images, custom fonts are all great for showcasing your product/service. But the price to pay in terms of reduced page load times and ultimately, decreased sales, can lead to some difficult decisions about what to cut.

It is a coldfusion project, so just regular files. I will be using eclipse but I think that some of the others use coldfusion studio still.
I am located in NC but the files will be hosted in Texas.

Something simple. I will be testing locally on my machine and the changes I make will be replicated to the test server in Texas...

VSS can work but it is really for projects with a colocated development team.

Sorry guys, I actually have been working with subversion but forgot I had this question open.
Thanks for your help. I chose subversion over cvs because cvs doesn't support folder versioning which is a big problem. I have also been working with eclipse for a while and the svc pluggin seems to work well.
