Hi, I'm using Windows NT as my web server.  Building a whole site that will be linked to a database is a very complex task using cgi.  I used cold fusion for a while, but my trial period is over.  I cant aford cold fusion :)

Can someone tell me what freeware tool can I use that's like cold fusion?  It needs to be able to handle Access, Sybase and Oracle ODBC.

I recomend you use PHP.  Its not like cold fusion, but in some ways its even better....and its free!!!

The code will be also embeded in the template, but coding is more complex than CFML.

you can download a php windows nt version from

php is a complete language, you can create functions, classes, ... etc.
