Very easy to learn server-side scripting language with MySQL database access.
Product Details

Escapade, or ESP for short, is a server-side scripting language that provides an interface to back-end database contents. Specifically designed to create dynamic information from this data, Escapade can be used to generate any kind of document - HTML, XML, text, and more. Unlike many scripting languages currently available, Escapade boasts a relaxed and forgiving learning curve. Another key characteristic of ESP is its ability to not only supplant other scripts, but to co-exist comfortably with them as well. Rather than the esoteric scripting of Perl of PHP, ESP syntax more closely resembles BASIC. This makes ESP a comparative pleasure for web developers. Anyone with a solid knowledge of HTML can be up and running with Escapade in a matter of hours. You just need to add two lines to httpd.conf, extract the binaries to your cgi-bin and you are up and running.

... I'm impressed what it's able to. I wrote an intranet invoicing application, I put many websites based on Esp online and my own site with 15k hits monthly. Escapade handles this low traffic easily. Especially the learning time is very short. I needed effective 1.5 hours coding and tests to write an easy app like a guestbook without more skills than HTML and sometimes installing and adapting a CGI. Of course reading about MySQL/ SQL took me 3.5 hours more ;o). After 6 months I am able to teach it. Give it a try, it rather resembles natural English than BASIC or other programming languages, mentioned in the description.
