    Alright, I'm wanting to make a website for cheats for games, but there is a problem. I have no idea where to start off. How would I go about doing so? Thank you in advance.

    John ...

    You have a webhost that allows PHP and a MySQL database.

    Then, find a CMS Content Management Script that allows you to
    upload categories, instructions in text file, or PDF files, and a way to
    search the database. You could even use a blog type script.

    The key is a way to be able to upload with titles and categories that
    visitors can search from within the database.

    I question the content though.

    I did a search:
    http://www.google.com/search?q=game+...arch&hl=en&lr=

    35 million hits!

    Why would someone visit YOUR site for game cheats?

    You had better have something unique to draw visitors, because there's
    millions of sites to choose from. Learning how to use PHP and MySQL
    would be a good experience for you though.

    hitting on msleim's content statement:

    best game cheat site I can think of would probably be gamefaqs.com

    if you think you can do a better job, go for it with all you've got

    Actually first things first, before you go sorting out a domain name and coding everything, or worrying about how you're going to implement it.

    Sort out your content, and everything else.

    Think about how is your website going to get one up on the competition, how you can get repeat visits (ie, such as bringing in forums to allow players to discuss different cheats, different games they might suggest to each other, that they'll then eventually come back again to your site to find cheats for).

    Content is the most important part of your website, so its best to make sure you've got everything sorted before hand.

    to re-iterate:

    Content is king!
