I've been creating a web spider to gather data from vendors who do not have an RSS feed. With the help of LWP, I've been making good progress.

Now that I've got the data, I'm not sure what to do with it.

If I were using PHP I'd stick it in a MySQL Database. Is that still the best option?

Eventually I will want to make queries against the database through a web interface.

I have Googled some stuff, but it seems out of date.

I just need someone to point me in the right direction.

DBI module is your friend. Check in the nearest CPAN to you :) There is a manual and many books written about it.
