    Can anyone help me?

    This is my first post at sitepoint.
    My company wants to implement a subscription service to their magazines online. There are about 30 articles in each magazine, so I am assuming I would need a database.
    Can you suggest the best combination of products? This would be my first time creating a database driven website.
    Also would it be a good idea to use XML to organize the articles.

    Welcome to SitePoint. Why don't you introduce yourself officially?
    http://www.sitepointforums.com/forum...?s=&forumid=51

    I would recommend PHP and MySQL too. Take a look at Kevin's tutorial:

    If you have more questions come and see us in the PHP Development forum:

    Thanks

    Thank you for the suggestions. What's the learning curve with PHP and mySQL. Will there be a problem if I am working with Macintosh servers.

    It all depends on how quickly you learn. If you have experience with C or C++, or languages based on them, you will pick it up quite quickly as PHP is based on the syntax

    That's my 1700th post, I hope it helped!
