I am running WebGUI on most of my servers, its a perl based CMS system / framework.
I have been extending it a lot to suit my needs by writing my own modules.

Everything in WebGUI is modularized so you can write your own authentication modules,
url handlers, content handlers, wobjects which is stand alone modules for dragging in
to the website.

Its mostly not nessesary to change the core of the system as you will just create your
own module and use that instead of a build in default.

I have had to change a few things in the core, due to a 0-day i found, but apart from that
its pretty much just extending functionality of the existing framework.

The api in WebGUI is very good in my opinion, but as everything it takes some time
to get to know it all, which I have come to do over the years.

The + of webgui is that it got direct access to the apache webserver through mod-perl
and the api facilitates this very well.

Have you ever used git before? That's an easy way of getting a project together.

I also do 100% of my coding on Nix. So I'm just a big fan of terminal editing.

I have heard of Git and I rarely go to the site, but I can create an account and go from there; then send you a link to the source file.

I just use FileZilla for updating/changing files

Git works a little differently than what you're used to. I would suggest you read up on it a bit before doing anything. It's a great tool though, especially if you want to bring other people in on some of your projects.
