Are you looking for a server admin panel or a CMS? If you want a CMS look into Joomla. If you're looking for a server panel, like ultimatenet said, look into cPanel. Joomla is for creating/maintaining content, cPanel is for MySQL and file management.

cPanel requires a license you'll have to fork some money over for. It is a very extensive tool though for managing your server. If you just want to manage mySQL, get phpMyAdmin, which is free.

It sounds like you are referring to a CMS for a specific site though, not managing a server. In that case Joomla or Mambo are good choices.

If you're looking to do some heavy customization I would stay away from Joomla and go with Mambo. It's a pain in the ass to push Joomla farther than it was meant to be.

Isn't that kind of like saying stay away from Ubuntu but get Debian? One's based off the other. Granted I've only used Joomla, but the features/abilities are pretty much the same if I read their descriptions correctly.

There are a ton of CMS's you could look into though. Joomla, Mambo, Drupal, PHP-Nuke... the list goes on. Google 'open source cms' and you'll be set.

That's not what I'm trying to say at all. Just from my experiences with what we've been doing at work, I've had to write a lot of work arounds to integrate some of our applications with Joomla. It's nothing against Joomla itself. From what it sounds like, Joomla would probably work fine for his needs. I haven't developed anything crazy with any of the other CMSs so I'm not sure what they would be liek comparatively speaking. Have you had any problems integrating existing applications with Joomla?
