hi,

i am fairly new to programming (albeit an old hand at html), having just finished my first php / mysql project, which has taken about 3 weeks.

i would like to implement this knowledge to make certain sections of my site easier to update and maintain - especially for non-html-gurus.

i am confident of

* being able to check variables for the correct content to keep security high.
* keeping mysql user security settings tight
* rewriting the urls to make things search engine friendly

is this enough to start writing a CMS for use on a live and busy site?

or have i just displayed my ignorance with the above and should keep on practicing for a few months ;-)

and / or use an out of the box CMS as a far more security-conscious way to do it?

thanks for advice

Which is more than the authors of some CMS you come across can do.

I'd say go for it!

Add two more to that list...

-Prepare your articles with good SEO (H1, custom keyworded titles and metas)
-Make sure your upload scripts for images and files are secure

I think you have a good handle on it as well.
