I have just finished my personal website and want to create a CMS for it so that I don't have to keep logging in the cPanel to access the database.
What are the 'rules' to follow when creating a CMS?
I've seen the structure of WordPress and if I'm correct, they have an 'admin' directory will all the CMS files/directories in there.
Do I just need to keep those specific files out of the main directory and is it just a case of setting up a user/pass login to access the 'back-end' files? (ie preventing users accessing these files by asking for a login/session)
It only has to be very very basic as in literally just being able to retrieve and display the database data. Over time I may improve on this.
Thank you for your time.
BTW - LOVE THE NEW FORUMS!
