So, Which one?
Out of the languages:
ASP? ASP.NET? PHP? CGI/PERL? PYTHON? JAVA? VB Script? CFML? C++? XML? Or are you the old HTML guy?
Databases:
MYSQL? MS SQL? Oracle? PostGRE SQL? MS ACCESS? Or are you the old flat files guy?

My choice would be PHP and HTML for the language and MYSQL and/or flat files for databases. Most PHP developers prefer it.

PHP + MySQL a pain

Python for everything.
Zope for the truly dynamic stuff.
So far Postgres as backend, but MySQL would probably serve just as well.

Good to see that all of you are still hanging on to Perl/PHP, so I guess I'll maintain the productivity advantage for another while... ;)

I use Python and PostgreSQL.
Both open source both on ZOPE mySQL is good but some data corruption can occur in earlier versions.

ASP.Net C# and SQL Server. I also use xml files for data storage if database is over kill.

I've been programming with exotic Mac specific languages sine a few years now. A few months ago i started reworking my databases and sites to run with MySQL, PHP and other industrial standard languages to be able to sell any of my sites in future.

Something to consider when choosing a language / db ...

+1 vote for mod_perl, HTML::Mason and MySQL

Outgrew PHP 2 years ago, tried the overhyped Java & stuff, and it sucked. Perl turned out to be really killer platform, if you have the time and drive to learn it properly (I luckily had).

On my personal sites I use PHP & MySQL (the performance is decent and the price can't be beat. Plus Im more of a *nix guy myself).

At work we use a mixture of ASP and (mostly) ASP.NET/C#.NET and MSSQL. We dabble with XML when necessary. We use Perl to generate some nicely formatted scripts when needed.

On the topic of PHP & Oracle, I just used this for a project at my University(SpeedBid auction site [botev.cs.uchicago.edu]) - a databases class.

I am surprised at Oracle sometimes - MSSQL is so far superior in my mind, but every once in a while Oracle just does something SOO right. And for the record, it seems like many people do use Oracle & PHP - you just don't know about it!

Add one vote for Java / JSP here. I was a Java programmer before getting into web development, so JSP seemed the way to go. I'm surprised at the amount of PHP votes.

ASP and MSDE, moving toward .NET/C# and MSDE

MSDE rocks because it provides most of the power and ease of MSSQL for FREE. I run a 20k unique users per day site on MSDE and it cranks.

I'm rather ashamed to admit I'm still using Access with ASP. The ASP part I can deal with, I quite like ASP actually, but the Access database I think has to go. :P I only use Access databases for reading from with very rare writes, any larger output I need goes to text files. One of these days I'll find the time to move on..
