    I've dabbled in HTML in the past and I've played with quite a few content management systems such as wordpress, joomla, e107, and a few more. I want to step up my web design skills and stop depending on CMS for all of my sites. What I'd like to build is a site kind of like this one.

    http://www.thefatlute.com

    I think a site like this would be great practice, fairly simple design and incorporates a database. Can anyone tell me the best way to start something like this?

    Actually if anyone could help me out with creating a basic database and being able to add to it and query it using an html or php page I think I could figure the rest out with trial and error.

    Looks like some sort of ASP scripting ... a CMS of some kind.
    So, their site is ASP.net scripting probably on a Windows Server.

    To build something like that from scratch would be a tremendous project.
    Google has tons of tutorials for MySQL and PHP together.
    Good luck ... you'll be busy for months.

    Yes, you can use PHP and MySQL.

    I'll post this again:
