I need a database driven website which is as good as ebay, and ...

What do eBay, and have in common? They're all applications that integrate large databases with the Web. The popularity (and power) of these applications stems from their accessibility and usability: thousands of users can access the same data at the same time without the need to install any additional software on their computers. The contents of these websites are entirely driven through various small database applications designed and developed and then finally merged into one main Database Application.

Database driven website implies that you have a web page that grabs information from a database (the web page is connected to the database by programming.) and inserts that information into the web page each time it is loaded. If the information stored in the database changes, the web page connected to the database will also change accordingly and automatically without human intervention.

Database driven sites can be built using several competing technologies, each with it’s own advantages. Some of those technologies/tools that McCoy uses are -

PHP stands for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor. PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language. PHP is an advanced website program that runs on our servers here at Thelix. PHP lets you create dynamic web pages that can display a variety of data, depending on what the viewer choses to click on. PHP web pages often work in conjunction with a database of information they draw from.
Active server pages is Mircrosoft’s PHP like scripting engine for dynamic pages. A server-side scripting language in which commands are embedded with regular HTML to provide dynamic content. ASP is generally found on an NT server. It is a different from PHP in many ways but it is also very similar in that they have to same purpose of providing a means to creating dynamic web pages.
Organizations today are facing several unique data challenges: the proliferation of data and systems across their enterprise; the need to provide employees, customers, and partners with consistent access to that data; the desire to better equip information workers with meaningful information to drive informed decisions; and the mandate to control costs without sacrificing application availability, security, or reliability. MS SQL Server is designed to help enterprises address these challenges. SQL Server is Microsoft’s next-generation data management and analysis software that will deliver increased scalability, availability, and security to enterprise data and analytical applications while making them easier to create, deploy, and manage.
Pronounced Òmy ess cue elÓ (each letter separately) and not "my SEE kwill." MySQL is an open source RDBMS that relies on SQL for processing the data in the database. MySQL provides APIs for the languages C, C++, Eiffel, Java, Perl, PHP and Python. In addition, OLE DB and ODBC providers exist for MySQL data connection in the Microsoft environment. A MySQL .NET Native Provider is also available, which allows native MySQL to .NET access without the need for OLE DB. MySQL is most commonly used for Web applications and for embedded applications and has become a popular alternative to proprietary database systems because of its speed and reliability. MySQL can run on UNIX, Windows and Mac OS.
