I use perl, along with the CGI and Pg modules (actually, mod_perl works
even better -- much faster!).;  Alternatively, you can use PHP3
(, an embedded HTML scripting language along the lines of
ASP.  It has a lot of really neat things like database connectivity
(including Postgres), graphics manipulation, regular expressions, and so
on.  It runs as an Apache module (you can run it as a CGI mdoule, but it's
sooo slow) and has a syntax based on Perl and C.
