    Hi folks

    I'm about to shift from ASP/MSAccess to PHP/mySQL to build a new site.

    My new site is going to contain news/reviews and different articles. I therefore need a content management system (CM). I have created a simple CM system in ASP before, but I need a new one to run on a linux/Cobalt server.

    Does anyone know of any cheap CM systems or have some PHP examples of such a system?

    TIA,

    Jeff Jensen

    As I've said before: every site is different, and the odds of you finding a simple turn-key database script are very slim...customization will be vital I'm sure.

    I second the earlier recommendation: visit Kevin's tutorial...it's VERY helpful.

    Also checkout this site on WebMonkey: http://hotwired.lycos.com/webmonkey/...tutorial4.html - highly useful...read it after scanning through Kevin's series.

    Kevin explains things in more detail so that everyone can follow along...the guy on WebMonkey skims along faster without many detailed explanations, so it might be useful if you feel you already have a steady grasp on things.

    if you learned and figured out ASP, you'll learn and figure out AND love PHP

    take a peek at the articles Kevin Yank has written on WebmasterBase , also visit sites like http://www.phpbuilder.com and http://www.devshed.com .. for syntax info, and the only site i ever use, http://www.php.net has a wonderful quick reference ...

    hope that helps

    Vinay, a man after my own heart in the sites he visits for PHP. The PHP manual is very good if you already know how to program anyway. I will always say though that the only thing you need to be a programmer is a logical mind to work out the best way to get round a given problem, learning a language is the easy bit all you need is a reference for the language - nothing else in my opinion.
