To echo your other replies, there is always a trade-off between cost, ease of
mainenance, usability, and functionality.
PHP seems to go quite hand-in-hand with MySQL, despite some limitations. I'd
take a look at the MySQL site and
see first if you can live with those limitations.
Ive been living in an ASP/Access world for the past year, for mostly "light"
internet and intranet applications. Due to the mainfame
side of our IS dept. and the fact that we have a Data Adminstration dept.
that is dedicated to IBM's DB2, we are required to use
the DB2 UDB database (a DB2 server on PC, if you will) for future
development. Best I can say here to anyone is "stay away"!
My vote is with MySql, unless you'vegot to do triggers, sub-selects, or
views, or simply have to create work for a pre-existing DBA....
