For your need on Serverside web programming see

Some of the contents are listed below
A Web application may be a software accessible with the HTTP protocol from a Web browser. It can also be a software accessible from any other network protocol. In fact, what defines a Web application isnt the technology it is based on, but rather its use, or its purpose. The most appropriate technology should only be chosen after the entire project evaluation.

Very simple,

Server Side = Needs Web Server to run the scripting. i.e all the scripts will run on the Web Server Configured.

ex, PHP , ASP.NET, JSP, ASP, ColdFusion on the respective web servers like Apache, IIS, Tomcat

Client Side = Does not need Server... which will run on the client side ... i.e Browser plays main role to run on the script...
