eBay isn't a store, it's an auction site - quite a different thing.

If you're new to php/MySQL then developing an online e-commerce site isn't a good place to begin.  There are 'canned' sites where you can become an online seller without ever knowing any code - google 'free online commerce'.  You could dive into something like OSCommerce if your web host has it available.

Don't expect overnight success is php/MySQL is new to you.
Legend has it that reading the manual never killed anyone.

Precisely. You can't just stumble upon the entire script and then become rich by tomorrow morning. Unfortunately, there is a learning process.  ;) I suggest putting in some honest effort to learn the very basics of PHP.
