Like everything in life, what one person loves another hates and vice versa.

The best thing to do is evaluate all the options suggested before commencing your project. If you do not have the luxury of time then pick one at random - just be prepared for someone always to say it is the end of the world because you did not choose their current favourite and so prepare to rot in Hell or an Indian call centre Wink

The truth is that you can learn to program in any language. It's not like PHP won't work. After you learn many languages though, you're going to find that some do certain things better than others. What those things are is largely left up to opinion. (My opinion is that PHP isn't really good for anything, but other people's religious views may differ. Wink )

You could decide to use <fill in language here> and be perfectly happy.

In fact, you could even decide to use <blank>, although I doubt you'll be perfectly happy with it... Sneaky

I wouldnt recommend you use VB for anything, personally.
As for installing php, open Terminal.app and type "php --version" to see if anything shows up, if it does then you already have it.

I don't think he is using a Mac due to him not being used to "installing without an installer", otherwise I wouldn't have suggested XAMP(Windows): Apache+PHP+MySql Wink
