    this is a really broad question, it depends on what you mean by Web based Programs.

    Do you mean like web apps, for example on a site if so php is a great language.

    For general little scripts i think python is a great language.

    If you're just trying to accomplish SEO tasks you should check out zennoposter it isn't really programming but it gets the job done.

    If you are wanting to do web development, learn PHP and Javascript.

    C,C++ are not used in web development, but they are very good languages to learn and many languages like java, C# are based on c++.
    PHP is easy to learn and widely used web based technology, ruby is another web based language that is good and easy to learn. They both cost less in terms of tools required to build apps using them and hosting.

    ASP.NET, C# is another strong web stack that you can consider if you have time and patience to learn. ASP.NET has matured a lot and very good support for many external js libraries like modernizr, jquery, nuget etc and many other libraries.

    Many people here in diff threads commented that apis are in php and php is more advantageous to learn, but api are meant to be platform independent and consumable by any programming language and you can easily integrate apis with .NET

    Php books::

    Let me know if you need more resources on .net if you opt for that

    Python seems to be easy language to learn. Once you learn python, you can move to php for web development or C# for desktop and web development.

    Best Prgramming Languages are PhP with MySQL , for Normal and Medium sites , and for more higher Advanced sites and Web applications ASP dot Net is the best choice .

    Go with PHP if you already know HTML.

    I learned the basics of several languages 5 or 6 years ago and PHP was the most useful one for me - even with basic knowledge you'll be able to tweak wordpress themes and plugins.

    Agree with Abstroose , now a days most of the CMS are PHP based , so ypu can edit and tweak everything . If you beause more familiar with it you can create your own scripts etc . Wish ypu good luck

    When you're starting out:
    HTML and CSS are a required. You must know both in and out
    Javascript or a javascript framework (jQuery) is highly recommended to make your site interactive
    PHP for the backend processing.
    MySQL for the database.

    Once you get the hang of all that, you should take up Ruby on Rails as well. Learning Java, C, C++, C#, Perl etc for web development is useless unless you're already well versed in PHP. PHP extensions are built in C, and you can use Perl/Python for processing later down the road.

    In most cases though the languages you need to know:
    HTML, CSS, jQuery, Mootools, Javascript, PHP, MySQL.


    Lastly, learn command line for centos and how everything is setup for a server.

    Seems there is not the one answer to your question, simply take one of the given languages (for example php, java, c++, python) and start learning about it. While you understand/learn the syntax more and more and practise by actually solving problems you need a litte scipt for, you might get some general ideas of programming.
    At this point, language will not longer be a huge matter to you. You want so switch? Just read a short tutorial to get some basic ideas of differences.
    Should there occur any problem and you have no idea how to solve it, google it or participate in some forums, chances are an other person had the same problems once.

    So basically
    1) Get your ass up and start learning a programming language (not matter which)
    2) Gain experience by solving problems with it
    3) ???
    4) Profit

    I have been using javascript, php for the website development and server side code.
    I would recommend starting from them as they are all scripting languages and meant to be for fast development.
