One of the advanced mechanisms is Drupal, you are well known to support it! But simultaneously tools of Drupal too should be supportive. CMS are been modified then and there with new versions right! So, your server must have the mechanism to get adjust to the new versions. If not, you can’t use CMS for any cause. Simply go with Apache or PHP to get new options more and more.
