I am eyeing to buy an e-commerce script which runs under the frameworks of CakePHP, MySQL, and Ajax, among others.

Once installed on my domain by the script seller, I am planning to customize and maintain it myself. Then, promote and market the site.

When it comes to CakePHP, MySQL, and Ajax, I know it would be a long shot for me since I am new to web development. But the prospects are exciting: I would be able to maintain my own site. :-)

Hence, if I have to become well-grounded on CakePHP, MySQL and Ajax, what would be your recommended step-by-step approach towards learning those frameworks so that I would be able to successfully customize and maintain my site myself?

Many thanks in anticipation of your insights and pieces of advice.

Kinds regards

Hi narcuadro,
Sorry you haven't yet received any replies, Cakephs is certainly not my forte, but I think a strong grasp of at least the basics of php will help you get to grips with maintaining your script.

You may find that there will not be a lot of maintenance required. Depending on the app itself the majority of the upkeep may indeed be web based.
