Hi guys

I havent used MySQL yet but i plan to do so soon,I did abit of programming in C. I want to populate a database with data received from 3 virtual serial ports, then display the data on a website made in visual studio.
I am trying to decide how to receive the data from the serial ports, should I use PHP or is that more suited for getting data from the web.
I am using windows 7..

Any suggestions ..
