Python vs PhP Searchable Database
I have a simple question, along the lines of Searchable Database what lingo would be best, Python or PhP.
I know PhP works great with MySQL but Python is so easy to learn, and I have read a huge amount of software use Python so I would imagine building a Searchable Database with it would be doable.
I am asking as I have an idea for a website that NEEDS a Searchable Database that users can type in into a search bar and it will give web pages with the corresponding word.

Danny: I think that whatever language that you plan on using will likely have the necessary libraries to interact with the database of your choice. You should choose what language you are most comfortable with if you have no other requirements.
That being said, in terms of searchable databases, it might be worthwhile to look into something like elasticsearch (either by itself or to index another database system) for these types of use-cases. It is flexible, powerful, and can be integrated into most any kind of application or website.
