    Drupal or Joomla??
    Hi,

    I know this is not really a direct Mac question, but I'd like to ask this advise anyway.
    I am installing a web development server, and am indecisive as to whether I should use Drupal or Joomla?
    I will be developing on my Mac, but some of my developers might use Windows.

    What is the general consensus of these two development tools?

    Thanks,

    Nigel

    Since they are both web based content management systems with a long history, I don't see why there should be worry regarding developers using Windows.

    I don't have a consensus, but reading the criticisms over at wikipedia, I suspect Drupal has better user access control. That may be very important to you. It also supports more than just MySQL.

    The thing is, you should write down your requirements and concerns, and then do further research. People's opinions will vary depending on both their experience and needs.

    When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

    Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.

    I've messed around with both and in the short time I used both I prefer Drupal. However, it ultimately boils down to which one is more appropriate for your needs. I suggest trying them both.

    I am struggling with the installation of Drupal on my Windows Server 2008. Can anyone point me in the direction of a decent tutorial/installation guide which I can check?
