Does anyone have any recommendations?

I'm finaly taking the plunge and want to start off with the best.

I've been working with mySQL and PHP ... and got a test bed set up ... and am going to take the complete plunge and get busy ;-)

I've run into some security issues with the mySQL db I had live on my site .... I'm sure if I'd known more I wouldn't have had the problem .. so I'm not going to let that influence my decision.

I would just like to get some pro opinions on what is best, easiest and most secure to use for a LARGE, constantly updated site?

Thanks much!

PhP and mySQL were practically made for each other.

Fix your security issues. mySQL is a good database to use.

Thank you.

I believe I've got the security issues fixed now ... but am getting daily reports of hack attempts.

Just makes me a tad bit nervous ;)

Take care.
