    CMS that can communicate with my MySQL database

    Most of my content projects are custom and dynamic driven from a database (1000+ pages) with only a few static pages.

    What is a good CMS I can use to give certain levels of access to users who are registered and logged in and paid to gain access? Also to customize the CMS to edit/add/delete rows in my custom database? This seems like the biggest task. Static pages are easy. Give me a lightweight CMS that I can use to point add/edit functions to my preexisting MySQL database.

    It seems like all my projects are a simple database - what is good CMS with hooks to customize my needs?

    On exiting, I like Drupal and WordPress (for what its worth) and not touching Joomla (aka Mambo).

    Thanks for any feedback

    Go with Drupal. It's extremely customizable and you could easily write scripts to connect to your existing database using PHP.

    It's up to you. Personally I use snippets, much easier than a full module for my needs.
