I manage a couple of FreeBSD servers for a friend. He's gotten all excited about content management and thinks that's the way to go. The system he's familiar with is Windows only. I've done a little research, but I'm wondering if anyone reading the list has experience with a CMS on FreeBSD - one that's in ports preferably.

Pros?  Cons?  Any known security issues?

I've used both Wordpress and Drupal. Both are good and both are bad. Because both are PHP based, they are not dependent on the port maintainer, if you are comfortable with keeping things up to date yourself. Both have made huge strides in the last few months to improve their systems to require less work on the command line in regards to updating.

I recommend that you test drive both systems and determine what you are comfortable with. Most canned themes are available in both systems.
