Which Content Management System (CMS) should I use?

I am looking for a light CMS that I can use for creating a simple personal website for a friend. The server that he will host his website only supports PHP and no databases.

So, I need a CMS that may not be very scalable but the important thing is that it must be easy to use with a simple user interface that a layman can use to add content (and as I said no databases).

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

A simple Google search would have been helpful: google.com/…. You might try PivotX, gpEasy, editease -- it all depends what you want and what is available. – Matt Dec 19 '11 at 16:26
@Matt Thanks. And sorry I googled but probably with wrong keywords and came across Symphony and Silva . :( – Ankit Dec 19 '11 at 17:17

FlatPress is a blogging engine which stores its entries in flat files instead of a database. I've used it for a couple small private blogs for a couple years and liked it. I expect that with some customization you can make it look less blog-like.

What about PageLime: http://pagelime.com/

Its pure HTML but has an interface to editting an publishing through web and mobile devices.

Plus, you can have up to 3 sites for free.

sorry. But, I was looking for some open-source stuff that I can run on my server. – Ankit Dec 20 '11 at 9:55
No prob. I'll leave the tip. – rcdmk Dec 20 '11 at 15:35

dokuwiki is a php based wiki that does not require a database. I think you could use it as a simple CMS.
