Question Createing a Web based Database

Itís time to ask the pros. Basically what I need is a guide to what I should be reading and learning to do what I need to do.

What I need to do..
Create a Database with a web interface where users could see an inventory of pictures in thumbnail view with descriptions. At the same time to be able to search and for a specific picture by name.

How do I go about to doing that, could someone recommend the right books on what I should be reading or point me into the right direction and step by step process that I need to take to get this done. Iím pretty new at Pearl, cgi and sql but am willing to learn from your experience.

I got a coulple of books on Perl/Cgi but they donít explain how to implement the script to a webpage.

might need to go to a more indepth website on the databases though. :: to learn about perl scripts relating to html :: heres one with mySQL and PHP. a bit outdated but i'm shure you'll get the idea.

if anything just google it

php and MySql work dead easy together.

phpmyadmin is useful for taking the drudgery out
of managing the database.

you'll have a site up in no time.
