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.  Perl sounds good
because there's allot
of scripts already available, but I've heard that C offers better
performance.  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
  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
