So I need a PHP arsenal. And since I hate programming myself, just happen to be good at it, I don't like coding things that have already been perfected by others.

So... What are the packages for:
Wiki
Forum
Blog
Shopping cart
CMS

im drawing a blank on any other "essentials" but im sure SMF is the forum, Wordpress is the blog, but what about wiki and shopping cart and CMS?

phpWiki has a lot of traction right now, but here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_wiki_software

is the best comparison that I've seen.

Do my own cart and CMS, so can't help there... but it's just so durn easy that I don't know that you'll have to...

agree on the forum and blog choice.

Also suggestion: phpCollab - makes a great framework basis for project management and groupware. Took a little bit to get the codebase under my belt, but once there, it's pretty expandable into groupware for specialized apps.

fwiw - I've used two different shopping carts for my clients, and the most powerful I've used is 1ShoppingCart.com.  It has a lot of marketing pieces to it such as affiliate programs, autoresponders, and ad tracking.  It's not cheap (by a long shot) but it flawlessly integrates with our CC processing, and supports electronic/downloadable products.  I'm currently using it for my largest client who has four different lines of business he runs through it.  May be worth a look for you.
