MySQL and PGSQL and Hostname Question

first, i would like the thoughts of some folks with more experience
than i have.

i want to learn pgsql. i have some vb and msaccess experience and
would like to learn how to use php and pgsql to develop some nice
website / application functionality.

however, i'm not sure the hurdle of relatively miniscule documentation
and tutorials is worth the effort. i'm now thinking i should just use
mysql to start and, if the need really arises, move over to pgsql.

i'm busy with a lot of stuff right now - regular job, starting a
business, developing a web site for the business, learning graphics
programs, living life, blah, blah, blah.

what is your opinion? go with the better documented db and develop
more quickly but have to possibly switch over later when time may be
more available and retain my hair or bite the bullet and go with
pgsql?

differing opinions are appreciated and encouraged so i can evaluate
them based on my own set of values.

also i am trying to set up localhost as my url so my hardcoded links
work on my local win98 machine (actual webserve is linux).

host.sam is as follows...

127.0.0.1 localhost www.easyautodeals.com

my apache httpd.conf file shows the following for ServerName:

ServerName www.easyautodeals.com

however, when i type easyautodeals into my web browser, i go straight
to my actual web server and not to my "localhost" location.

any guidance or direction w/b greatly appreciated.

of course, i meant when i type "easyautodeals.com" toward the end of
my last note. a funny thing has happened. when i type
"www.easyautodeals.com" into my web browser, it doesn't find my sight.
i have to type "easyautdoeals.com" or "http://easyautodeals.com"

does anyone have any ideas why?

DNS issues probably. Your DNS entry has to have the following line in
order for www. to work:

www.easyautodeals.com. IN CNAME easyautodeals.com.

P.S. I love postgres and highly recommend it. I think the docs are
quite good.
