    PHP connecting to a MySQL database can certainly do all of what you describe.

    Other options you could consider is JSP (Java Server Pages) but I know little about JSP.

    PHP, Java and ASP could be the better choice depending upon the language better known to user.

    ASP is good to develop e-commerce website. I highly recommend ASP rather than any other.

    i believe this particular question can't be answered. any language capable of retrieving data from your database and outputing text to client's browser will do what you wnat. JSP developer will tell you "do it in JSP, because it's the best", php developer will say "PHP is superior" and so on.
    it's all subjective

    i would break it down into two parts:
    storing, organizing and fetching the product data
    providing that info in the most user-accessible manner possible

    this allows you to optimize both using the best tools for each job.

    your data half should be able to spit out single-item, categorized, or search collections. it should be able to output JSON data and static HTML that gets slapped in a server-side template to make discoverable URLS.

    for the user-half, you actually need two sub-focuses: Machine views and User views.

    for SEO, all your items should have the data side making HTML pages that should be linked together and discoverable via a sitemap.xml or index page. these pages are chocked full of meta and product info, but aren't really for the user to consume.

    for the actual user with javascript available (99%), you write a few shell templates that can be easily skinned, preferable using an existing framework like bootstrap. use ajax to make the site quick and efficient and easy to maintain via client-side templates and data API calls. knockout, angular, mustache, and many other GREAT template packages abound out there for JS; far more flexible than raw php or asp. You can really make a nice snappy interface these days with very little (relative to 2-3years ago) effort.

    in sum, not trying to use SEO pages for UI is the secret to having a site that real people like to use. i've outlined the broad steps to create that effect, the particular code is nowhere near as important as the concept.

    expression engine is a simple CMS that sits on top of mysql without too much bloat or internal complications, good for managing list-based data like products. with EE, i know you could dump all your product info into a custom DB, and then easily generate pages and searches of that content. I think drupal would be too much complication for what you describe, and wordpress might not do what you need. There are other CMSs out there as well, and even sharepoint might be good fit for list-heavy collections.

    Also: It seems like you almost only ever get answers like "MySQL" for the database stuff -- as if there was nothing else. There are many more database systems than just relational SQL systems. For example, you may find that a document-oriented system like MongoDB or a NoSQL graph system like Neo4j suits your needs much better.

    Not saying it's the case here, although it might be -- just that it's something to think about. For example, a graph database will make categorizing your items much more flexible.

    Strongly *DISAGREE*.

    ASP is obsolete. Microsoft is no longer doing any enhancements or modifications to it; no active support.

    On the other hand, ASP.NET is wonderful for this kind of stuff. Don't confuse the two.

    And ASP.NET can easily be written to abstract the database layer, so you could use MySQL or SQL Server or Oracle database and even change from one to the other if needed without a complete rewrite.

    I actually like ASP, too, for small to medium sized projects. But it's still obsolete and there's no guarantee how long MS will continue to support it in IIS. There's no announced end-of-service date, yet, so you've surely got at least 5 more years, but I wouldn't start any big eCommerce site using it at this point in time.
