In response to Robert Heffenans query I too would recomend Php but using the
postgresql database as the backend. Why? It's Open like mysql, supports
transactions, procedures and a whole heap of stuff that really should be
supported by a decent dba and so shifts the burden off of the webserver and php
to look after these things.
I agree with Adam Beechers sites for starting with plus webmonkey.com if he did
not mention it already. (an oversight on his part if he did)
Also A free site with no banner ads worth checking out using the above combo is
http://www.freedom2surf.net/ With this site you get 5mb for database, 20mb for
webspace, 3 popboxes with unlimited aliases and what i think is a great webmail
tool, Imp. Oh and it uses the absolutely great frontend for postgres,
phpPgAdmin 2.1. This is a similar version for the one used by mysql. Why not
give it a whizz, costs you nothing!
Btw, I know its kinda early, but anyone going to apachecon europe in october?
Anyone fill me in on is it going to be all high brow lectures and nothing but c
hackers? (nothing wrong with c, I like it, its simple, fast and stops people from
wanting to become programmers)
