You could look for Steve Holden's book on Python web programming.
Also, Dave Kuhlman has a nice Quixote tutorial; see
http://www.rexx.com/~dkuhlman/quixote_appgetgo.html . Section 7.1 has an
example of using the PostgreSQL database under Quixote; adapting it to MySQL
shouldn't be difficult. Most relational databases support a standard
interface under Python; see http://www.amk.ca/python/writing/DB-API.html for
a (slightly elderly) tutorial on it.
In my opinion XML-RPC, while useful, would be pretty confusing if you're
new to web applications; I wouldn't worry about it for now.
