what sort of things can php do on its own, with mysql (or any other form of sql/database)? is there speed inprovements or anything? are their enough advantages of it to use on a normal site?

if you want to test php scripts, you need to set a PWS (person al web server) up on your system, like I do.
<a href="http://www.apache.org">Apache Personal Web Server</a>
<a href="http://www.php.net">PHP Scripting Home Page</a>
I personally use HTTPD web server, with perl, php and mysql installed. I can run really all message boards, news script and php-nuke type things, all without going online
PS. i can't find the httpd homepage, but i am sure if you search about, you will find it
