Understanding the Problems of the Legacy PHP Site
As I stated, the current administrative system was written years ago in PHP4 with a MySQL backend and has served our buddy’s site well, but the application’s code has been maintained by a variety of pasta-loving amateur developers, which has led to a number of maintenance issues. For one, the site is an incredible hassle to maintain—even simple changes to the application often take days to complete and cause many other things to break. Second, the application’s interface hasn’t adapted and evolved with the needs of the site and has now become rather cumbersome for the staff to use. So Ron (the owner of the site) has opted that his best option before talking to any more buyers is to refresh the site, starting with the administrative tools that the staff uses on a daily basis.
