Sifted through some code I found floating on eMule... a complete CVS snapshot of Ebay, anno 1999... quite interesting stuff, all maintenance are simple *sh scripts and pages are served through a compiled collection of CGI-apps ... ISAPI... everything with complete source...

From what I can see they are running (or ran) a highly customized Apache on Win32 (atleast this build for windows, notices mention a transition from unix to windows in '96) with ODBC connections to Oracle 8, with their own home grown extensions... the source is full of comments, fun comments... and misspellings... "Ebya". It's customizeable, it uses string tables and language identifiers...
