comment Why should I use a Content Management System?
+1. I would add a pro is that all CMSs have a lot of functionality available (blogs, wikis, forums, etc.) but you canuse as much or as little as you want. If you start small, you can add in pieces later as needed, so it can grow as your nees grow.

comment Storing credit card details
+1 for the idea of never storing CCs in your database. Our payment gateway provider stores all that information now, which is a huge relief on our security exposure.

comment Is it bad to develop against production data?
+1 on the sync process. We do that on demand here for our development. We also have a QA which is a more often synced area for final review of changes before they hit production. But we do run queries against production data sometimes, just because the issue is data related and very hard to replicate.
