I need a recommendation for a Content Management System (CMS) to run on a LAMP website.

The goal is for non-technical users to add / modify articles without my getting involved.  I would want to set up a framework / skin for the site, but then allow people who don't know HTML or anything else technical to add categories and articles and change those as needed.

What has worked well for you?

    I am sure you are aware of this site:

    Contains "demos" of just about every "free" PHP CMS on the web.  You can download and apply/modfy the CMS that fits your use best.

    Xoops, e107 and the "nukes" are what i have experience with and they all work fine.

    Joomla is a very extensible, full-featured, and easy to use CMS. I have used it and modified it extensively. The code base is clean and well-organized, which makes for easy modifications when needed. The frontend is customizable and user-friendly.

    Drupal is pretty good also.

    I have worked with Joomla and Drupal.  If you do not need to modify the core functionality, I would recommend Joomla.  If you are a developer and you want to make some highly customized changes, go with drupal.

    You will be up and running much faster with Joomla and I agree with glcummins above.

    From what you've stated, my recommendation is Joomla.

    Thank you all very much.  I'll check those out.  This is one of those times when actual experience is far more valuable than whatever the products' websites say about them.
