    Hi,

    don't start with a big project when you're just beginning to learn PHP. After you've learned the basics, try a simple task like a registration form to add new students to a database and then output the students in a table.

    A (good) CMS is a very complex task, so you should have advanced knowledge and quite some experience before you do that -- and you should actually make a solid concept before you start programming. Otherwise you're likely to find yourself struggling with ugly code that gets bigger and more complicated each time, up to a point were you can no longer handle it.

    You probably aren't going to find a tutorial for a whole complex system. But take the system and break it down into smaller parts:

    Login
    Create new student
    Read student(s)
    Update student record
    Delete student record

    I bet you could find tutorials for those smaller parts.

    For example:
    Login tutorial - http://www.wikihow.com/Create-a-Secure-Login-Script-in-PHP-and-MySQL

    Registration system tutorial:
    http://tutorialzine.com/2009/10/cool-login-system-php-jquery/

    These were just a few that I googled in like 10 seconds.

    Good luck.
