The secret to understanding the Web architecture is not to assume
it is like any other architecture (don't look for the distributed
objects -- even if they are there, they're not supposed to be visible).
CGI is not part of the web architecture, so you would get more insight
from playing with Robert's module API for Apache.

BTW, look into Apache + mod_php if you are going to work with databases.
