Someone emailed me about Pivot, which according to the site, is a tool written in PHP, to create weblogs (and to some extent other dynamic websites). Pivot is almost finished, will be Free (as in beer speech), and easy to use. Also of note: All data is stored using XML and no database is required, just plain PHP. Oh, and of course you’ll want to look closely at any system that has instructions like Files and folders have to be chmodded to 777. Because we all know that just isn’t a good idea…
