How do I set up a Browse page?
Forgive me if this has already been asked and answered; I searched the site but found nothing that seemed to fit this problem I'm having.

First off, I need to warn you that I do not know very much about php or mysql. So please, be patient with me... I'll try my best to understand what you're talking about.

I have a database that the previous administrator set up in which articles are stored. Here are some random blots of info you might need:

Database name: database1
Table name: trulyHollywoodNewsArticles
running on localhost
articleId mediumint(25)
catId varchar(155)
catName varchar(155)
articleTitle varchar(255)
articleRank char(1)
articleDate datetime
articleCaption text
articleBody longtext
articleAuthor varchar(255)
articleReadCount mediumint(25)
articleFile varchar(255)

What I need to do with this data is set up a page in my site (http://www.trulyhollywood.com/) in which every article title is listed by articleId (this may be a problem, not every articleId is valid, the first valid articleId is 34) and another page which sorts them alphabetically. All of this needs to be written in PHP.

I'm trusting that somebody here would know a script already in existence that could suit this need OR is able to storm one up inside of their head and share it with me.

Thank you for your time.
