Lightweight CMS

From: Stephen Haywood 
------------------------------------------------------
I need a lightweight CMS that will run on Ubuntu 12.04. I am setting up a
small web site and need something very uncomplicated to help me manage the
content. Any thoughts?

=============================================================== From: Lynn Dixon ------------------------------------------------------ Concrete or Drupal will probably be your best bets. Concrete is really lightweight and pretty easy to use.

=============================================================== From: Jason Brown ------------------------------------------------------ I would not call Drupal uncomplicated or lightweight. Powerful yes. I have not heard of Concrete but an initial look is promising. I will be digging deeper into it when I get the chance. Thanks Lynn. --Jason

=============================================================== From: Stephen Haywood ------------------------------------------------------ I will look at concrete. I also thought about building the site with web.py. Will let you know what I decide.

=============================================================== From: Joshua Estes ------------------------------------------------------ Silex is a good one as well. On Jul 2, 2012 10:04 AM, "Stephen Haywood" wrote:

=============================================================== From: "M. Isaiah McGowan" ------------------------------------------------------ http://www.turnkeylinux.org/cms may have something useful for you also.

=============================================================== From: Erik Hanson ------------------------------------------------------ I haven't gotten around to trying it, but I think Octopress *looks* great. http://octopress.org/

=============================================================== From: "Alex Smith (K4RNT)" ------------------------------------------------------ Running Drupal or Joomla on an Amazon EC2 instance on the free tier may be a good way to overcome your scaling issues. http://aws.amazon.com/free http://aws.amazon.com/cloudformation/aws-cloudformation-templates/ Mandatory disclaimer, I work for Amazon in their datacenters, but do not get any rewards for referring customers.

=============================================================== From: Joshua Estes ------------------------------------------------------ If you don't need databass access, check out pelican. Its a python static site generator.

=============================================================== From: Stephen Haywood ------------------------------------------------------ Thank you guys for all the suggestions. I need to archive this thread for later use, but for now I have the website setup using a simple web.py application with apache and mod

=============================================================== From: Sean Brewer ------------------------------------------------------ Octopress is cool, but it's kind of complicated to setup for non-ruby people.

=============================================================== From: David White ------------------------------------------------------ As much of a Drupal guy that I am, I would also agree that it isn't lightweight nor uncomplicated. It can be somewhat of a memory hog and isn't for the faint of heart.

=============================================================== From: Mike Harrison ------------------------------------------------------ As a security researcher, I'd start off with Wordpress.. Install lots of kruft. Then Joomla, Then Drupal.. just to watch the exploits.

=============================================================== From: Stephen Haywood ------------------------------------------------------ I asked for help from the list because I didn't want to install the WordPress remote management system. :) On Jul 3, 2012 1:36 PM, "Mike Harrison" wrote:

=============================================================== From: Sean Brewer ------------------------------------------------------ If you really don't mind the slight learning curve, Octopress is great. You can even host the site for free on github and it's actually already setup for easy deployment to do so.
