    Cool Looking for Basic PHP Guide online?

    I'm want to create a small version of a cms.

    I am almost clueless about php and mysql. I know the basic functions of programming and php.

    Anyone know of a good guide to getting started with user interfaces (login and password and the integration with mysql.

    Other features such as submitting a forum to a mysql database.

    And then listing stuff from a mysql database and organizing it based on certain criteria (based on the rows in mysql database)

    ---

    Really, I'm just looking for a generic guide that will help me get started with php and mysql.

    Thanks,
    matt

    In my opinion the best way to learn coding is to do coding and read other's coding. You need help on user login's, database integration etc... the things which are core of any cms. Well I recommend you to read free scripts and their manuals available on www.hotscripts.com in PHP section. You will find useful scripts on user logins, database integration, form desingning, template making etc..
    That's just my thought. May be some one else can give you much better advise. So wait for some more replays.

    Yeah, I thought about doing that. Maybe I should just tear apart someone else's work to get a good idea of how things work. And then if I have questions, I can always come back.

    I learned with this tutorial: http://jamhitz.tripod.com/

    I constantly keep a browser open with the function reference open while I code.

    I have never been too sucessful with figuring out other people's code because there are so many different ways of doing one thing in PHP.
