I want to learn PHP and MySQL but I also seen that many programmers talk about Ruby and Laravel. So my question is what is best language to learn and use for creating simple CMS (user management 4 levels, forms for those users with different level of access and for simple statistic from those fields from form – mysql)?
thing is : there is nothing as a “simple” CMS , you will need to include password reset options, user preferences , user management, access management etc. If you are just now wanting to learn php & sql , then you might have quite a long road ahead of you,
Ruby is a language in it’s own and laravel is a framework …
Best thing to start with, would be to read tutorials and get quite familiar with programming techniques.
Get yourself aquianted with MVC (Model –> View –> Controller), check php.net for available functions. Out of experience, start with a paper drawing or flipchart first that has all the elements you want need to have, think about the database layout, tables, field, etc.
