    Accepted Solution

    Both platform are suitable for that: there are differences you can consider but AFAIK these differences doesn't refer to better performance in large databases and huge traffic. If you choose PHP/MySql I only recommend to use PDO abstraction layer to manage the database: PDO allows to use transactions which are strategic working with  database linked to websites with huge traffic.

    None is better: both are good. You have to choose that you prefer as language.

    PHP / MySQL is better. (how's that for an opinion!)  Yahoo, Facebook, large parts of Google - all of these are PHP machines.

    But seriously, why not use Ruby on Rails?  It's great for rapid prototyping.
