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.

Well, its so funny, theres a PHP Scripts directory with 5,842 listings in it, and I think I've never seen a script with PHP and Oracle, 90% I would say is PHP and MYSQL 10% I'd say is PostGRE SQL.

It would be counter productive to offer free scripts for PHP & ORACLE since our license costs us a pretty penny.

The folk who use ORACLE don't look for free scripts to hack on, they hire a team of programmers. ;)

Most of the PHP + Oracle does not go public. It's custom made for a client.

something like Python

I've never looked back since I started using Rebol for all my CGIs and backroom non-CGIs stuff.

If you haven't come across it before, it is well worth a look at.

For clients: Depends - mostly asp.net (vb.net) and SQL Server, sometimes asp.old and SQL Server, occasionally php and MySQL

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!

same here,
and I also like them because they are easy to learn and have more fuctions, but not as many as CGI I reckon, but enough for me.

So let me get this straight,
there is no one here who uses CFML or PYTHON is there?

I think Google uses Python, not too sure...

HTAG + ydbEngine

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.

I use perl, mod_perl, HTML::Mason and MySQL whenever I can get away with it.

HTML::Mason in particular is great.

If you ask me, on my Home PC, I've got WAMP installed, which is for debugging scripts etc, and on my real site, I've got a LAMP. Most people do that.

PHP/MySQL are the current tools of choice.

I use to work with CFML - dumped that a few years ago.

Have been playing more and more with the ancillary technologies that strengthen the core script/db infrastructure like SOAP.
