Well, I think ASP is a little easier. If you already know VB
, VBScript, Basic, or anything like that, you'll be fine. It's got a lot of pre-built functions, and is a little more lenient, but if you are on a *nix server, use PHP please. ASP is pretty powerful, once you learn it, though.
Also, this tutorial
is a Lycos sponsered article on choosing a server-side programming langauge.
. It's a great article from Webmonkey (Lycos sponsered and hosted) on programming languages to choose for server-side applications.
Hope this helps -
