- Newbie help - benefit of mySQL

I've only recently started using PHP.
I'm finding updating the site a real pain so I want to setup a password
protected file/content management system using PHP.
I haven't really looked at mySQL yet, but I could easily create
webpages by importing code segments from separate php files.
Is there a benefit in using mySQL over storing content in php files and
importing the code to generate pages?
Does this make any sense? I would appreciate comments on website
management, allowing restricted users to update articles, page styles
Re: Newbie help - benefit of mySQL
When you have user interaction with your web site - they are typing
information in, reading information out entered by others... then it is
time to investigate the use of a database.
In other words, if you want them to be able to effect the content/look
and feel of the site from the web browser/device, then you should
consider using a database.
