OT: Need some offlist help with PHP-SQL

Hi Tiemo,

If I were you, I would not use PHP just for security reasons alone.

My servers are just pounded all the time with hackers trying to
find PHP exploits.  They even try to install PHP on my server so
they can start hacking away. If you check your server’s log files 
I am sure you will find similar hackers trying to hack your PHP. 
They may have already been successful too!  

If you can do it, I would recommend turning those PHP scripts into 
LC scripts as soon as possible.

Good luck,
