    Pulling articles from db tutorial...

    Does anyone know of a good tutorial that specifically explains how to pull a series of articles from a database for use on a website?

    Very new to PHP obviously; but it isn't the text that stored in the db, it's just reference to that file right?

    Thanks for any help

    Nope. Usually, the actual text is stored in the database, making there no need for any flat files on the server. For tutorials on how to pull data out, check out http://www.devshed.com/, http://www.phpbuilder.com/, and http://www.sitepoint.com/ has some tutorials as well. In particular may be Kevin Yank's first four chapters of his book, which you may view on SitePoint. It'll teach you nearly all of the basics.
