    Its syntax draws upon C, Java, and Perl, and is easy to learn
    So I'd assume C++ is covered in there also

    No... not really. Granted, you can use a lot of the same things in C and C++, so there are going to be some similarities, but it falls more along the lines of C.

    webmonkey will be shut down in the near futer

    www.hotscripts.com php section, tips a,nd tutorials

    PHP wins by far IMO. php is free, fast, multiplatform, and very easy to learn. works well with mysql and apache (which are also free). ASP is practicaly IIS dependant and you have to pay for all the add ons. example: mail. with PHP, just whack out a mail(); and you're done. with ASP you have to buy the module.

    As most ppl already stated on this thread The reasons to use PHP:

    platform independant.
    C/C++ like syntax - so very easy to pick up
    PHP/MYSQL - go very nicely togather
    A vast amount of user and group support to get you going.
    NOT DOMINATED MY M$

    here is a good place to start php and most of your web needs.

    PHP is definately better than standard ASP. However, ASP.NET is a good competitor for larger projects but its bulkiness is not recommended for small projects. And Java servlets just suck.
