We want to create a basic website with links to MYSQL database - with simple webpages. I am aware of two possible solutions of cloud hosting options between Joomla and Wordpress - what are the advantages and disadvantages between the two and in general which one do you recommend we use as preference according to your advantages?

Thank You.

    I would recommend WordPress for it's simplicity - I personally find it simpler to setup and work than Joomla. That said, both are great choices and you will get lots of community support for either one. However, you may also find one more suited for your type of website that the other. I suggest you try both of them out. There are many articles doing this comparison.
