What language would be best for...

Hello programming Pros!

Myself, I have modified a little html, php and actionscript to make something work, but never created anything from the ground up. Here I may need to.

I need to create an online database:

A user can create an account

An account can be created with more than one user having access

Each user may login to the account to modify a single number, or different users on the account may have access their own number

The number can be added to, subtracted from or re-entered all together by every user with access

The website accessing this database must be viewable by most mobile devices

Thats pretty much it. Some options will need to be added later but this will be the main functionality of the database. The numbers will not be of a sensitive nature and the site will not need to have secure encryption.

[b]So which language should I learn to make this happen?
Please let me know what you think.[/b]

If you have any further questions as to its general use or needed features please let me know and I will reply as soon as I can.

Thanx,
Joshua

    You used PHP a little and PHP can fill all those requirements so use it. I can't think of any language quicker and easier for the job.

    For accessing the system with a mobile device, you'd probably have to generate pages conforming to WML or a strict XHTML DTD. It sounds more complicated than it is. If you can type WML in notepad, you can make it a PHP file and just automatically generate code or call on a database wherever needed.
