Question by thethethe789: How to build a content management system?
What is the best way to learn how to build a content management system? Is there a good book to learn how? or should i just use one of the free ones, if so what the best for having users customize their own accounts?

I assume that you are new at PHP and server side scripting. Therefore we cannot just teach you how to make one. You will need lots of practice with PHP, and I mean LOTS in order to write your own. If you are really set on writing your own, pick up the book called “PHP for the World Wide Web: Visual QuickStart Guide” by Larry Ullman. It will teach you how to make a CMS from the basics of PHP. It also has the complete source code in the book too.
However if that seems too much work, Drouple is a VERY powerful and easy to install open source CMS with great support. http://drupal.org/ It is 100% free and great for beginners.
