Specifically, I'm interested in dynamically creating HTML pages using CGI & SQL, as well as uploading information from HTML forms to a database on the server.   I'd like the pages to have database content including BLOB objects.  I'm planning on using Perl, but might opt for C because I've heard that it offers better performance.  Perl would be nice though, because there's allot of scripts already available.  I've got several good books on the subject but would still like to hear someone explain the basic concepts.  (ex. Where everything needs to be to work properly, which features need to be activated, advantages or disadvantages of various approaches)  I've never done this before and it's a little intimidating.   ~ :-o

What do you want to do with this?
Administrate a Database via the web?
Authenticate from a database?
Access a DataBase via a CGI program?

For the first, there are several program already wrote that do that.
for mysql check out MyAdmin.cgi

For Authentication look into mod_perl ,
and the Apache::DBI module (which comes with:
o provides authentication
o  provides authorization
o provides persistent database connections
o enables debugging
) just make sure you have the DBI perl module and DBD module for the
database you use from (if not
already installed)

Apache:DBI and DBI, is also good for writting perl programs that
access a databse.

There are similar things "I Think" for python, C ,etc
