    Our office would like to have an easy web based depository for PDF, Word, JPG, etc. files that can be accessed with a password, etc. They want to be able to download and upload such files.

    I was looking into CMS and am boggled by how much there are out there. I am confused. Anyone have experience or suggestions in using one?

    Drupal, Joomla, Wordpress.

    For you, wordpress would probably be easiest to set up and get working.

    look no further than Joomla.

    http://www.joomla.com/

    Best CMS out there, and the development is exploding right now.

    I like Drupal better than Joomla, personally.

    But these are pieces of software designed to publish text articles first and have other functionality second. If you really just want to share your files, look into a file management system rather than a "content" management system. It's a small distinction, but you'll confuse your users less by having fewer unnecessary features.

    if budget permits. i'm not usually one to endorse MS stuff, but sharepoint rocks

    http://www.sharepointhosting.com/ <- good if you don't want to roll your own server implementation & licensing

    CMS is not really what you are looking for

    AFAIK, the server is an Apache. Can you still run Sharepoint on that?
