With so much information being learnt I would like to log it somewhere.

for example the answers I get here and from tutorials on the web. and create my own videos - is there an open source or commercial product which is well known which I can upload.

maybe using a cms system like drupal?

please assist.

This may be not quite what you are expecting as an answer, but have you considered Zotero? It's a Firefox add-on, or standalone product, primarily designed for researchers/academics. It has "cloud based" synchronization which is nice. Product is free, extended storage (if you needed it) isn't, but basic sync is (well I've never paid). http://www.zotero.org/download/

Anyway, have a look you might find it useful. Cheers.

ah, you want nirvana :)

perhaps take a look http://www.opensourcecms.com/ they host a number of demonstrations of various php based opensource cms products which you can search for and read opinions of, then if interested try (in a demo). However when you evaluate these do look at the administration "stuff" and weigh up if this meets your definition of "I want something simpler". Note also that if you start "stuffing" things into something that you consider to be valuable, you need a means to back it up and restore/reuse in the future.

oh, btw, not pushing php necessarily, and the PHP/MySQL relationship is about to undergo a major shift soon (if I find the article url I'll post it later).

by: Ray_Paseur

Introduction (all good things must come to an end) The original MySQL API is going away, deprecated by PHP in Version 5.5, with published statements that it will be removed in the future (see the red warning box). Since PHP 5.3 is now (February 2013) at end of life, and PHP 5.4 is current, the issues that will arise from the deprecation and removal are already before us. In fact…
