<BLURB> Gotta mention mod_perl as an option, you just need perl, the DBI and
and mod_perl for your werbserver. Apache works, quite well from what I hear,
on Win32, and
exceptionally well on Unices. And there's lots of docs out there
for mod_perl and others for the database stuff.</BLURB>

I think this is the same for 99% of the mod_perl/DBI stuff with the
exception of changing stuff t
move it from Win32 to Unix.
