If you want to do everything using open source (Free Software), I would use mysql for the database, java and jsp for the web pages and tomcat as an application server.

tomcat
mysql
java

You have to use some form of application server to create a connection to the database, execute SQL or invoke some stored procedure to retrieve data from the database, accept the data back from the database into your application, and format and display the data in a page.

There are a lot of ways to do this.

What kind of database are you using and what server technology do you have (operating system, et al)?

since sql was mention and not mysql then probably asp would be one way to go.

of course a ton of relevant information was left out.

Since it's something simple, PHP & MySQL is my recommendation. I've written a couple of books on PHP and one on MySQL, and reviewed about half a dozen more on PHP or SQL for A-W, so I can help if you have a specific question.z

You asked for "hay" programmers which I am, and now change it to a gay topic, SQL

Microsoft .NET. There is no other substitution.

I'm running a family discussion board using PHP and MySQL and I'm learning the language so I can customize the board to my own preferences. PHP seems to be pretty powerful and easy to use and, since it is strictly server-side, it is not dependent on the client having specific software (Java, ActiveX) installed on their computer.
