Depends what you want to do, but maybe have a look at django:

It's a quite powerful toolkit for building database driven web 
applications. It does a lot of the hard work for you, leaving you to 
code the bits that are specific to your particular application (in quite 
a sparse and expressive way) rather than generic form handling etc. 
Might be more than you need for a simple application, but worth a look 
if you're thinking it might grow into something bigger. It uses python 
so you'd have to learn that.
