I have a Rasp pi project currently in the works for a college class... Everything is going great, but I really don't feel like my Pi (2B) will be able to handle being..
1.) Appache Web Server (CSS / HTML / PHP eww)
2.) MySQL Server
3.) Bluetooth Scanner (Python / Bluetooth Dongle)
All at the same time. Especially since every 30 seconds the database will be hit with about 20-30 requests (1 for each bluetooth device detected), and then the web server will be using some ajax/jquery to refresh content on the current webpage every 30ish seconds.
I traditionally come from IIS servers and .Net programming and the Microsoft suite of software products (SQL server), and I'm very new to Pi / Linux software tools & products.
I feel very limited in types of server-side languages I can use due to the limited amount of web servers that support Pi devices.
Onto the question(s) at hand...
1.) What other alternatives do I have to web servers? I really like c# and vb.net. And I really don't like PHP. Java is okay
2.) What alternatives do I have to mySQL? I looked into parse.com... has anyone had any success with using that for single-paged websites?
I hope this question isn't too broad or too opinion based.
