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

For myself: php and MySQL
The big reason I use MySQL is because it's free (beer and speech), rather than the featureset :)
It's crying out for stored procedures and views - roll on version 5!
Although once I started writing directories with some volume in traffic I wrote a backend handler for MySQL, making my trusty old ydbEngine more of a middle-end caching system.
One disadvantage of writign your own scripting environment is that you lack resources to full test it. But considering how buggy such well developed systems as windows, PHP or MySQL are, I'm pretty proud that my scripting environment only crashes once avery few weeks ;)
PS: Trust me, there is nothing like having full control by writing your own compiler. Once there you'll never go back.
