database driven site - recs?

P: n/a
HR
I'm called upon to redo a website for a client that will have (when it's
built the way they want) the ability to serve up information dynamically.

I can build up the front end with the graphics but don't know how to do a
backend so I'll be outsourcing the work.

The site's objective: to allow site visitors to lookup and find
inspectors by county, and also to allow inspectors to login and change
their info via a web interface.

What kind of interactivity would be good for this kind of thing?
ColdFusion? ASP? PHP?

Anyone here have experience with this and interested in working with
me? Can anyone recommend what type of technology to use for this? (ASP,
PHP, etc.)?

HR
(if interested in working with me, email me at:
hollyrusso AT yahoo DOT com (hope that fools some of the spammers
anyway). Please post responses here though, maybe they could help someone
else someday.

Any. What you can get hosted easily, wheat you can find developers
for, what integrates easily with your database platform.

"LAMP" is probably a good place to start looking; Linux, Apache,
MySQL, PHP. The last two aren't my favourite tools, but you can do a
lot with them.

LAMP is often used to stand for
"Linux, Apache, MySQL, and (PHP | Python | Perl)",
so you're not limited to PHP. However, for more elegance you could
probably easily use LAMR [..., and Ruby]. For more power and reliabilty,
perhaps SAMP [Solaris, ...] or maybe LAOP or SAOP [..., ..., Oracle, and ...];
or, for MS fans, WAMP [Windows, ...]. If Oracle is too expensive but
MySQL is too wimpy for your app., you could try LAPP - PostgreSQL; etc.

And if CGI is too slow, there's mod_perl, JSP, and on and on.
