    Which script do you use

    I was just wondering, which server-side scripts do you mostly use...

    This might answer a lot of questions wheras people ask which is better.

    I prefer PHP for Server Side and PERL for CGI

    Sorry if it is not in the right place, please move

    I prefer PHP for server side scripting and JavaScript for client side scripting. Dunno why, but ASP/ASP.NET and/or VBScript just didn't quite work well for me. . .

    As for databases, since you can't really do much server side without at least one, I prefer MySQL. Oracle just confuses me.

    And for server applications, I enjoy Apache just because it fits so well with PHP and MySQL.
    PHP Code:
    $hello file_get_contents('hello.txt'); echo $hello
    hello

    btw: since the original server is HTTP, the apache runs on HTTPD server(apache) but I heard the Linux server is HTTPD is it true?

    ... Huh?

    The 'd' in HTTPD presumably stands for daemon.

    Yes.
    Just like when you have aRts (analog Real time synthesizer) running, you may also have artsd (aRts daemon) process running too.

    You mean does it act as a server where you can directly run PHP after installing it? That is something I've never heard of personally. Anyway, with things such as LAMP (Linux Apache MySQL PHP; there are variations of this for Windows such as WAMP and XAMPP), why would you want to? If you were actually running a server, you shouldn't need to worry about such apps taking up disk space because it should just be a server. On the other hand, if it were a server and a desktop PC, then I could see why (especially on a Windows machine). In short, you would need to install some sort of server daemon (or build your own) and then install PHP and configure it to run with the server daemon (easier said than done sometimes).

    When you insert the Ubuntu install CD (not the live-cd, the other one) one of the install options is 'Install a LAMP server'.

    At work, J2EE / Oracle.

    At home, PHP / MySQL / JavaScript.

    I wouldn't use PHP for a big project (the lack of exceptions in PHP4 annoys me, 5 has fixed this but a lot of hosts are only just moving over to it).

    I've used ASP in the past, never again

    I tend to use whatever will do the job the fastest without compromising quality.

    I've used JSP, PHP, ASP, and Perl so far. I'm looking foward to looking into Ruby and Ajax soon.
