This tutorial lays out the basics for creating a content management system in ColdFusion and MySQL. The System leverages hierarchical data to automatically build breadcrumb lists, a side navigation menu, as well as a site map. The goal of this tutorial is to provide a framework upon which to build a content management system that is easy to customize and maintain, leaving the web author more time to create content than maintain code.

If you've got a website with a database or your custom database running for your applications, it is imperative that you make regular backups of the database. In this article, I will outline two easy ways of backing up and restoring databases in MySQL.

Ever wonder how you can query a database and display the result set in something other than a one record per row layout? Keeping in mind that the simple answer is always the best one, I found a solution that keeps to that premise and solves an issue that seemed impossible not long ago. In a word, the answer, lies in the loop. An additional one, that is. But first, lets define and explain the general look and functionality of our project.

Stop writing insert and update SQL statements and cut the time you spend writing simple SQL in half while focusing on the more complicated things. Leave it up to OOP to help you out. We will make a class that goes out and looks for the values for us and builds a SQL statement on the fly. All we have to do is make sure the column names in the database correspond with the field names in the HTML form. Believe me when I say it saves TONS of time. I never write applications that don't use it.
