I disagree with calling Apache 2.4 "old-fashioned" - mpm_event works
quite well - but it is just good simple CGI.  It can run anywhere Perl
can.

It supports MySQL/MariaDB, PostgreSQL, Oracle, and SQLite3.  While I
prefer pgsql over the others, I'm not sure I would call any of those
"old-fashioned" either.

Assuming this isn't acceptable, what do you consider "modern"?
Unfortunately I have experience with over a dozen issue trackers, so I
can likely match you to *something* that would work for your
infrastructure.
