CMS - Java or PHP? Liferay or Joomla?
I read that I need a lot of RAM to install Liferay (at least 1Gb ram or a bit more).
When I compare with PHP options, I can ran a Content Management System for 512Mb of RAM.
My specialization is in Java (development) and I do not know anything of PHP.
This could be the reply: yes, you can work in what you are good.
But, I can learn PHP, too, if this were the problem.
Liferay looks like more powerful as a CMS, specially when you are creating something great.
I liked this info, too:
Here I could read:
Summarizing, I would say:
If you want to use a Java-based portal, or to build a wide, complex portal, I recommend Liferay without restrictions;
If you want to create an application which manages a lot of content, Liferay is a good platform to do it and I think it may be the best choice;
If your application is big but not content-centric, I would not recommend Liferay but it can be useful;
If your application does not manage a lot of content and is potentially small, Liferay probably will add more complexity than it is worth.
In the Liferay's forum people reply why they decided to Liferay:
Maybe here are the best replies about Liferay compared with Joomla and Drupal.
I'd like to ask you if you have experience in Liferay or Joomla in VPS and if you can help me in my decision.
Maybe there are other BEST options that I have never read about.
