can a complete newbie build php/mysql system?
I don't have any experience with mysql and php... well I know how things work, I know html and I know AS2 scripting language. I used to mess with java too.
I need to come up with an engine for my website. where should I start? Is there a program that will help me build mysql database tables? I'm quite cool with phpmyadmin, but I need something to work on my pc. And than any recommended reading on php? I don't need any fancy features, just read and write to mysql database + math functions like sum up all the results from the survey and display bar charts. I can figure out things myself, just put me on the right track :)
