php/mysql and apache help needed please

P: n/a
Hi all,
I'm currently working on a resource directory for the homeless, needy
and those
dealing with mental illness. The site is located at:
http://triangle-resources.no-ip.org
Triangle Resources denotes that this is for the Triangle area of North
Carolina (Raleigh, Durham,
Chapel Hill). Right now, I just list the information with html markup. I'm
thinking there
is a better way to present this and make it more useful, especially as the
list of resources becomes larger and
larger. I took on this part of the project as the most likely person to be
able to do it.
However, I don't have recent experience with database applications and
programming for
internet applications. I had done network programming and database access
in C but that
was years ago.
Again the web site is at: http://triangle-resources.no-ip.org which is
associated with
http://trianglesupport.net

Also for a web server I use KWFS web server that is free at
www.webattack.com
I'm thinking apache might be better and free as well but I'm not an apache
user yet and
don't want to having nothing running while I try to get it to work. The
KWFS was easy to setup
using the browser type interface to add web sties, and match each one to a
different directory where the
actual web site is located on the hard drive.
So, how might it be handled better with a database for the various
resources and using PHP or
Perl to present the information and layout the web page the user sees?
Suggestions?
Where might I turn for help with this, as in volunteer help, guidance,
suggestions, etc.
Thanks in advance,
Bruce
