    Xml Cms?

    Hi, I'm looking for a CMS that stores the content in xml files. I don't know how to work with mysql and I have all my content for my site already in xml format. I just need a cms that can go in, grab the xml files so that they can be updated or edited. Any suggestions??

    Well ask away, I'm sure you'll get some assistance here from other users. Possibly someone has an installed and running copy of the script you're looking at.

    you'll need to go with php. i dont know anything about XMLNuke, but I am pretty sure anything worth installing will come with installation instructions, explicitly labeled as such in an html or txt file (perhaps a readme.txt, too). Install it in a new subfolder of htdocs, and if anything goes wrong, it's easy enough to delete.

    it seems xmlnuke php version is for php5, and powweb has php 4.4.7
    I am assuming this means I can't use it

    What type of website are you creating? XML is very easy to use and convenient. But be careful what you store in these files, because they are easy to read by search engines. These files can get very big very quickly for some uses. Sometimes a database is the best option.

    As for choosing php or asp, php works anywhere and is recommended. I call asp (active server pages) "awfully slow pages", because they can take more time to load. For PowWeb, php is supported, but asp is not.
