Hi I would like to learn a scripting language to create dynamic web pages to make a simple database-driven online browser game (no moving graphics at first, just text and simple uploaded pictures) with a secure login. I currently use Dreamweaver for HTML coding and it lists the following scripting languages it recognises:
ColdFusion ColdFusion Markup Language (CFML)
ASP.NET Visual Basic / C#
JavaServer Pages (JSP) Java
I was originally going to go for PHP because it seemed the most simple, but I am open to suggestions as to which would be most appropriate for my intended use?
I am also a little confused as to what I need in terms of mySQL, Apache, etc on my PC. I've tried installing both but they don't seem to create any application to run. Do I need both or just the one? I am trying to keep things as simple as possible, thanks!
