New to Content Management catluvr msg:3020417 6:53 pm on Jul 24, 2006 (gmt 0) I maintain a static website for a municipality and have been told to look into a FREE CMS. The more I read, the more confused I get. My web server is IIS on Windows2000 server. If I go with something with a PHP programming language, does this mean I will have to learn PHP? I didn't even know PHP was a language until recently. I know some HTML from using Dreamweaver on the static pages.
Like I said, I am totally confused and ANY advice/help will be greatly appreciated.

There are many free (open source) CMS systems out there that would do the job for you and you would not need to learn PHP/MYSQL etc..
however The best CMS system is one tailor-made to your specific requirements and meets SEO basic necesities in which case programing knowledge becomes important.
But as I said, you could also easily get started with a free cms. A good place to start is at sourceforge.net ... search for CMS

There are a number of worthy "free" CMS products not on SourceForge. Try looking through

well, I am beginning to use www.CMSmadeSimple.org , It works on Php, but requires little or no, html knowledge. Extremely Handy and versatile
