It depends on the server you are using and the type/size database your
connecting to.

The common contenders are CGI (perl) ASP and PHP

ASP is used for NT servers, PHP & CGI can be used on both (I think) but are
usually associated with Unix etc..

Checkout MM Drumbeat for developing simple ASP database connectivity - and
get a good book. There's also loads of support sites available. Get the
lowdown on all three from Cnet.

As for the credit card transactions, you'll need a secure server etc. you
can do this yourself or get a third party company to handle the transactions
for you - it really does depend on the scale of the project.

Buy some books...get together withs techie..get info on the server etc.

Good Luck!

++ Sorry about the off topic question. Can someone advice me

++ searchable
++ database and capability to do credit card transactions? I
++ design websites
++ but I have never got involved in e-commerce or database
++ design so I am
++ standing right in the deep end without a float!
++
++ I know this is quite a big and specialised area, it may be
++ out of my league
++ but if someone can advice me I would be most grateful.
++ Maybe there are a
++ couple sites with loads of info about this subject for me to
++ learn from?
++
++ If I can use flash that would be great too, so not
++ altogether an off-topic
++ question :o)
++
++ Thanks,
