The only problem with Zope is that its python is restricted, so, you 
won't be able to import some modules. However, there is a solution: look 
for a file called "", located on 
<ZopeHome>/lib/python/Products/PythonScripts, and enable the modules 
like is described there (with the allow_module function). Then place the 
file on a product folder (this is also described there), start zope and 
you will have a functional python. Then you can create users on the 
built-in acl_users folder, or if you have an LDAP Server, then you can 
install the LDAPUserFolder. If you have other authentication method, 
then look for more user folders (there are plenty of them). And 
the best of all is that you can access it with a browser.
