    CMS? Wiki? Suggestions needed

    I am interested in installing some sort of web based application server on my Linux box to accomplish the following:

    Provide easy to navigate web pages that my family can access
    Some level of security as some pages will contain sensitive info (account numbers for example)
    No coding required
    Minimal installation / setup requirements (rather avoid adding a bunch of stuff like MySQL, pHp, etc, but its not a show stopper)

    I already have Apache on the box and running well.

    My goal would be to have a simple way to create content / pages and publish them to my server, allowing some content to be viewed by the whole family, and other content to be restricted to only my wife.

    I am a technical guy, but not so much on Linux. I also prefer to not have to spend a ton of time getting up to speed as I would rather be playing my guitar so, arelatively easy solution is a must.

    I mentioned CMS and Wiki systems in my subject line, but other solutions are welcome as well.

    So what would you suggest I use?

    Haven't used it myself in a few years, but Foswiki sounds like a good fit:
    It is basically a wiki with different levels of access depending on user groups.
    There are obviously lots of enterprise Groupware options that would be equally suitable (though perhaps overkill), but I don't have any experience with them.

    Re: CMS? Wiki? Suggestions needed Meets none of your criteria.

    Well a few, but it has a learning curve. The time you spend would be worth it in my opinion. There is an active support forum community and lots of plug-ins to add functionality.

    Requires some coding that you don't want to do.

    Requires fiddling with MySQL and PHP which you don't want to do.

    The time it takes to learn drupal cuts into eating and sleeping time, and even guitar-playing time.

    But, it's a good CMS.

    I use mediawiki, it's in the repositories, and it seems to meet several of you criteria.
