    CMS (Content Management System) works by using a server-side language
    such as PHP or Perl. Those languages allow someone to log into an administrative
    page and make changes to the site by editing text files and uploading content.

    There are many turn-key CMS programs for PHP/MySQL ... many are free, some
    require author credit, some are ad-free, some cost money. It all depends on the
    features and how customizable they are.

    If you know PHP or Perl, you could make your own simple CMS, for a single user,
    with one password. Nothing fancy, but using PHP and/or SSI (Server Side Includes)
    to pull-up content from text files and display them on a web page.
