That's why I install/update WordPress for people who are not coders. If 
they want a fancy look, they can use themes. But the content management is 
already built in and fairly easy to use for someone who knows nothing about 
how this stuff works.

I suggest looking at the help pages for how to install it via Subversion to 
make it easy to update. Make the PHP source owned by a custom user, with 
Apache having write access only to a few necessary directories like the 
upload directory. (Most of the content will actually be in MySQL or 
MariaDB.) I use ~website/trunk to hold the code.
