PHP Content Management System

I'm looking for a content management system that works.

I've tried phpNuke, phpMyWeb and Jetbox so far. I cannot get any of them
to even display the admin screens.

I have an Apache 2/RH 9/PHP 4/mySQL setup - all tested via a simple
test.php script which does what it is meant to do.

However - I get nowhere even getting an error displayed on the above CMS
systems.

Please help.

Hi Matthew,

Just a kind word of advise: Your question is quite bad.
Actually it is not a question, but a complaint about 3 CMS's.

This kind of 'question' is unlikely to help you any futher.

Just suppose I am REALLY GOOD with all three abovementioned systems, Suppose
I wrote parts of it. (No, I didn't.)

What then could I answer to your question to help you going?

Be more specific.
Describe what you tried and what went wrong.
Did you read the manuals?
And last: Try to stick to 1 CMS and get it running first.
You only frustrate yourself trying to get 3 up...

Hang in, rephrase your question, be sure you read the manuals, and come back
after that, ok?
Good luck, don't give up.

Regards,
Erwin Moller

Ummmmm, as far as I can read, he just wants the names of systems other
than the ones he tried, not recipes for getting the systems he DID
mention to work...

legit question, I'd say...

If you've tried three different CMSs with no success... what make you think
the next one will be any better? Those you've mentioned can/do work. They
work on thousands of servers each day. Perhaps you should find out *why*
those didn't work.

No - it was a direction to give me advice on one that works, I assume
that 3 is nowhere near how many there are. No point wasting people's
time having them suggest one that doesn't work.

Mambo is now installed and running no problems.

No - I asked that question on the respective support sites/forums with
no feedback. This group isn't really a support group for specific CMS
systems - however I thought asking about alternates was marginally on topic.

I tried 20 or so newsgroup readers before I found one that I liked, I
figured 2 or 3 CMS systems not working isn't a big hurdle.
Those you've mentioned can/do work.
Well when there is only 3 lines of install instruction, and it does
nothing (no errors - literally nothing) after that happens - it doesn't
give you much hope.
They
work on thousands of servers each day.
I'd suspect more than thousands of people know more about hacking PHP
than I do (otherwise I'd write my own).
Perhaps you should find out *why*
those didn't work.


Why - seems easier to chase up an alternative or two. I've started
evaluating Mambo, and one other person has given me another one to try
out - in addition to another one I have found by asking elsewhere, I'm
way ahead of trying to hack PHP code.
