Looking to hire consultant to help with web app launch

RE: Looking to hire consultant to help with web app launch
Likely best for you to bring on a CTO before making any technical design choices.

Choosing outdated technologies like MySQL-5.5 + PHP-5.4 will create a set of problems for no reason.

For example, PHP-5.4 is highly hackable.

Using Microsoft Azure also presents it's own set of problems. Expensive hosting + Azure licensing fees + Blackbox software which can only be fixed by Microsoft (shudder).

Start with latest LAMP versions - Apache-2.4.25 + PHP-7.1.5 + OpenSSL-1.0.2g which are today's latest stable versions.

Also start with MariaDB rather than MySQL for a huge performance boost.

If you're looking to build out a substantial product with maximum flexibility + speed, stick with LAMP +WordPress.

Last thought. Once you start down the Azure rabbit hole, you're pretty much stuck. There's no escape.
