I recently decided to set up a motorcycle enthusiast site. Wow has a lot changed since the last time I put up a site. While I could just use a text editor and web browser that seems passe. I think I know what I want to do so I want to run it past you.
I want the site to primarily reside in a database. Calls to the site would activate a script that would bring recent content within the database together for viewing. For example the front page would have a list of recent articles, reviews and forum posts. This would allow people to update content through the site, and the front page would be updated automatically.
The portion most used would be the forums. It appears most forums are written with PHP and mySQL. Boy what ever happened to Java?
So I will need a host the provides 2 mySQL databases and PHP. Have I missed anything?
