OK, before I begin let me preface this post by saying that this is my first *ever* post to a PHP forum and I have *zero* experience with websites. I'm a complete newb.

With that said, I'd like to make a website that myself and a few friends could log into and edit a record in a database. That's it. I've already learned a good portion about MySQL and I've got the database and all the fields ready to be played with. My question is, what methods should I start looking into to make this site a reality?

well first off you will need a login script. i just wrote a basic one as example for someone else. you can check the thread out here:

next you will need an update script which is pretty much connecting to the database (see code snippets in thread above) and doing an update query.

Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)
