Getting started with "long polling"
I would like to start implementing to my site some "long Polling like" techniques.
Basically i need a main feature that refresh an HTML listing whether new data has been added to the DB.
For my setup, I have a entry range VPS server with LAMP environement. I know PHP, JS and i am familiar with Unix systems.
What would be the right technology to achieve some long polling effects?
Thanks a lot for any inputs
