These decisions should not be a matter of opinion or preference. The problem description and requirements specification should be used to make the decision.
On databases, an obvious one is that MySQL has a free version for production deployment while Oracle is not free. You should then identify the database features you'll need for the requirements and check to see if they are supported by your choice.
On Java/JSP vs PHP
Again identify the requirements of the system. Are you going to have complex business logic that requires transactionality and separating concerns into separate modules? If so Java could be prefered though PHP 5 now allows a fully object oriented approach to serverside development. In JSP development you'll encounter many problems that have been solved using several web frameworks so you may want to use use one of those like JSF depending on the complexity of your requirements.

The key thing here is your requirements. You can't chose an architecture before laying down the requirements.
