As a one-time php developer I'm fond of phpWebSite by Appalachian State
University. Lots of features, works great on apache 1.3x or 2 and has an API
for module creation.
I've spent hours looking at CMS's testing them and as far as I know this is
one of the easiest to implement and control, with the features I was looking
for (calendar, wysiwyg editor, fine grained user control, extensibility,

My other reccomendation would be Typo3 CMS, but its a behemoth of a program
(script). It DOES everything, but its fairly intense to set up and get
going. Its also a php script, and it does have some excellent tutorials and
a fairly active user support base.

Just my 2 cents,
