Which web programming lang to use?
Hi, I'm working on converting my very old, HTML-only, web page to a dynamic page using server-side code. I've never programmed in perl, python, ruby, or php (much) before, so I'm not quite sure which language to use (or if there are other good languages). I'm looking for something that will integrate well with apache2 on Linux and have good database functionality (specifically with MySQL). I've done most of my "programming" in bash scripts and some C++, but am willing to spend some time learning whichever language works well. If you have any recommendations on which language might be best for me, I would appreciate your input!
