    Unanswered: PHP and HTML

    Hello all,

    I actually program with Java and am new in PHP. I am going to create a database for online dictionary and my question is:

    which is better to use with PHP for creating database: MySQL or ODBC?
    Or shall I use any other programming language for more efficiency?

    Thank you for your help, waitinggggggg,

    PHP will work with almost any database. I always work with Oracle, so I don't know about the performance with other DBs. I had an experience with SQL Server 2005 + ASP, and also Oracle + ASP, and I did notice a big performance difference. Oracle is much faster. Still, I think you should do fine with PHP + MySQL.

    Best regards.

    Program with whatever you are comfortable with. You will find the nuances easier to deal with that way. As for databases, again it comes down to preference. As much as I would LOVE to get into Oracle I find myself working with MySQL a lot, and never have a problem with speed (so long as you know your SQL )

    PHP with MySQL is an ideal combination when you are concern about efficiency of your application.
