Hi, Linux brothers...

I have to develop a linux webapplication soon. A database in involved. Since I'm already Sybase DBA, I guess Sybase will be the RDBMS. No problems here..
I'm planning to use Apache webserver.

I'm now looking into the serverside-scripting of the application, which has to access Sybase. There will be about 5000 hits (queries, updates) a day.
What scripting should I best use for this? Do I have to care about multi-threading just like Transaction server on NT?

Thanks for any hints based on your experiences

By far I would recommend PHP ( www.php.net ).  It is a very powerful yet easy to use language with great SQL compliant database ties.  I'm 99.99% sure it has full support for Sybase databases.  Thier web site has some great docs and Devshed also has some very good tutorials.  http://www.devshed.com/Server_Side/PHP/

EE also has an area : http://www.experts-exchange.com/Computers/Programming/Languages/PHP/

Good Luck.

You may want to look at MYSQL... It's not Sybase; however, it is very powerful and has a big user base in Web apps :

Yup PHP is your best bet.

your database is the thing handling the strain so make sure you use lots of disks and lots of RAM...

The application server should be able to handle the load easily, Allthough lots of open database and web sessions will eat your RAM.. You can play around with the Apache config to handle the load....

MS Transaction server is a load of Tosh (personal opinion don't flame.)

Apache isn't multi threading.. and doesn't need to be.

Haha..

Well, I think you're right about MTS. but hey.. that's my opinion..
And I think of more people who know that there's some proven technology around since the 70's. It's called UNIX.. but don't tell anyone..
