    I am a newbee to MySQL database programming. I have an existing website that I want to make into a CMS site. I know I will need to create a MySQL database on my VSP server, then tie into it.. I will also need to add PHP code to my site to make it a CMS site.

    I want to do this right the first time, so are there any documents, books or tutorials that I can read/visit to learn to change an existing HTML website into a CMS website.

    I want to learn this, so any help is appreciated in directing me to a reading or learning source.

    My recommendation is to not reinvent the wheel, there are many nice existing CMS systems, so why do you want to write another one? Instead of writing your own cms, use a exsiting one like Wordpress, Drupal, Joomla or Typo3, install it in your website and then recreate your website inside that cms or create a custom theme in the cms.
