Lol it’s ok. I’m old too and my knee jerk reaction/gun-to-my-head reaction would also be MySQL and PHP mainly because that’s how I learned to code - by ripping apart php/mysql powered cms and e-commerce playforms. I know it inside and out.
yeah exactly, and users of this CMS are going to care exactly zero what fancy tech it's built with, so it's more important that it works well than it's built with the latest JS framework or the blockchain or whatever sorry do I sound bitter? 😇
Yea if you’re building a one-off CMS it really truly doesn’t matter so long as the interface for the users and viewers works. It only really matters when you’re building an iterative project or trying to make an open source platform
