Fix or Rebuild?

Postby bdetcinc » Tue Oct 02, 2012 12:18 pm

I don't have a computer background, but I designed a website that is being built in PHP and I am running into several issues with the programmer. The site is fairly complex with three user types (buyers, sellers, and reps) and several functions for each one, site replication for reps and downline/commissions tracking for 5 levels of Multi-Level Marketing, posts/blogs with media and attachments similar to Facebook, email and SMS notifications, back-end management, admin, and more.

The challenges I am facing:

- the site has been under construction for over a year when I was told it would be completed within two should be completed asap
- almost every time the programmer updates some functions on the site, some other functions seem to fail (not always seemingly related)
- the programmer is non English-speaking...the product is not being delivered in correct English, and the language barrier makes a lot of the work take much longer than necessary

I am wondering if it would make more sense for someone to take over the project, address the unfinished items, and make what has been created already function properly without constant malfunctions, or start over and rebuild from scratch.

Any words of wisdom or solutions would be appreciated, I am willing to pay market rate or other reasonable consideration for work done.

personally I say cut your losses and start from scratch. Why pay a developer $100 an hour to reverse engineer a project you're not happy with before he can really make any progress when for the same price he could be starting fresh and making it what you want.
