Hi Michael,

Personally I learned from experimenting, basically just coming up with ideas and then working out how to code them in PHP using the website.

I never actually read a book and found trial and error the best way to learn

Hi I would do this however I literally know nothing about MySQL, there is one big question you’ll laugh because you’ll find it stupid however I’m not sure how it works.

You know if you were making your own CMS and and you make tables in Mysql and then to connect to the database you use like a config.php page how come every one who uses your script doesn’t have to create tables how do they automatically appear :S

Thanks, Michael
