How to create** community website such as Myspace
Does anyone have a tutorial or guide or script of some sort for a website such as myspace? Like someone can register, they have their own little page, etc.

are you asking how to create a basic multi-user authentication system with features such as private messaging and editable full-page profiles? if you are, i doubt you can find a tutorial for that large of a project. otherwise, you would want to start by figuring out how to create a multi-user authentication system using php and mysql (http://www.php-mysql-tutorial.com/user-authentication/database.php).

that tutorial basically gives you a source code with the database table structure. if you don't know php, you're either going to have to learn, or you're going to have to hire somebody that knows php.

Use some kind of CMS. I like to use Joomla, and use the community builder extension to make a type of community website.

No matter what you do, its a fairly large task so its going to take a lot of reading up.
