    Question PHP newbie::::CAN I DO THIS

    I need help..
    Here is my dilema.
    I am trying to create a web application with PHP and MySQL that basically
    1. allows a user to login
    2. checks user and pass and directs the user to a specific page.
    3. when the reach the page they will either add a record, delete a record, or update a record.
    4. upon performing one of the actions mentioned above they would be taken to a page stating that the action was successful and a link to preview the page modified.
    5. When the user is satified with his/her submission they logout and an email gets sent automatically to the DB admin, a link is dynamically generated for the new content (if adding content) and a new content page is saved in some folder on the webserver.

    Is this complicated to do ?
    Thanks in advance

    Not really... PHP and MySQL is the best combination for that kind of tasks... Get some good information on Database Normalization, PHP and you are half of the way.
