Hello, I am building a website for a school that's used by students to find Zoom meeting links, view their marks, and check course materials. It is also used by the teachers to put the meeting links, students' marks, and course materials.

I created a similar website using HTML, CSS, PHP, and MySQL. Now I want to implement this project using some frameworks: Next.js, ExpressJS and use PostgreSQL instead of MYSQL

I want to have some advice on whether these are enough to implement my project

I have an existing personal website (https://hmenorjr.github.io) which is more of a splash/landing page only. I'm thinking of rebuilding it into a portfolio with a blog/article area. My go-to is WordPress now, because I've created a website for a small agency in the Philippines and exported it into HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. You can check it here: https://hmenorjr.github.io/phoutsource.

I need advice if I should do the same. Build it with WordPress (using LocalWP) and export it as HTML, CSS, and JavaSrcript again, or build it manually with either Next.js or Svelte.

MySQLMySQL

Hello, I wanna build an e-commerce website for myself and planning to build for others in the future. I really like Node.js, React, ExpressJS. But I don't know if MySQL or MongoDB is what suits me the best because at the moment I have a webhotel at a hosting provider and I like that setup, setting up emails, and having more control I guess over my situation.

But is there any way I can use MongoDB on cPanel or direct admin except using MongoDB Atlas which costs a lot of money?

Because I have a setup using React, Node, Express, and MySQL and it works kind of well when working in the direct admin panel. But I just wanna make sure I make the right decision now when I start building an e-commerce website both to be cost effective and also not have to learn too many things.

I am also open to tips for example choosing Next.js instead etc if that is actually necessary and would help me in the long run.
