Subject:Re: MySQL with a website???
View as plain text  
What platform are you going to use, NT, Linux, Unix,,,???
There are great webservers available for all these.  I use CGI and Perl for
generating all dynamic webpages and I have MySQL as the database.  Perl
works well with MySQL.  The one advantage to perl is that is it
interpreted.  You don't have to recompile a program every time you change it.

I use Personal Web Server on my NT machine for developing and testing.  The
actual web server is Apache.  Another great web server for NT is xitami.

If you are an experienced programmer and you haven't used Perl, the
learning curve should not be too steep.  I started with Perl about 6 months
ago and I began developing a Perl/MySQL web application about 4 months ago.
 The application works great thanks to the efforts of people on this
mailing list.
