    Choosing DB type and programing lang for web site - please help.


    Hi All,
    I need to choose a language and DB for my project.
    I need to build a web site to add data to DB.
    also I need fast search and math functions to be done on this DB. DB would be very large.
    Could you please help me to choose DB type (or maybe text files better) and what programing language to use?
    thanks.

    Consider PostgreSQL 9.2...it is open source and works pretty much like Oracle Standard edition.

    Well you can down load the code for free and run it on your PC if you like....I have never not just done that at my job and played/learned from there. There might be some, but I do not know of any off hand.

    Sorry.

    Language: Java or PHP or maybe Ruby on Rails or even perl
    DB: Postgress, MySql, or any of a zillion others.

    More important questions are:

    1) what skills do you have?
    2) what do you mean by very large?
    3) is it one big table, or hundreds of linked tables?
    4) what you you mean by fast?
    5) how many simultaneous users do you need to support?
