Topic : suggestion for choose the correct type to install to start a social site

Posted By: wmone on January 28, 2019, 1:30 pm
First of all, good morning to everybody here

Just to anticipate, i would like to tell you that i have basic/intermediate knowledge of PHP + myphpadmin + mysql. I've a very poor knowledge of CSS but good of html and javascript. I've some reminiscence of ASP and Vbscript  (i used to programme a lot lot lot of time ago (about 15/20 years for asp, a bit recently for PHP)).

I need your help to better decide:

I would like to create a "social" site where :

1) a user can register (so there must be the user management)
2) a user can interact with other user connecting with them

Basically i would like to have a basic ready to use site (in PHP will be preferred, of course)

than i would like to have the availability to modify pages (and / or create new one) in PHP (of course i know i will have to study / refresh my programming knowledge)

i will try the create the interaction of my user creating by myselg the needed pages (in no kind of iteraction is still existing)

of course i've an hoster (SEE4U) , and he offer me softacolous + cpanel + mysql databases ready to use

can you suggest me the perefect site i can install to start with for my need ?

I don't know if wordpress will fit my need. or if i will need a crm (wich i don't know) or a site like joomla.

Please, help me to start. thanks.

There are very good social netwirking scripts already built out and commercial...and most are written in PHP..even I saw few way if you are alone(no team) and want to lunch site fast than maybe you should look some of these already built...if you want to build from scratch then it is different story.

i'm completely alone

i've an idea, but i'm still thinking about it
i't still trying to evaluate it, develope, and write it on paper

then i will translate it into a site

this is wy i was making these questions.

and of course, i'm a person, i'm not a company. so i've no budget (i mean, no momeny ;) ) for it
