You could look for Steve Holden's book on Python web programming.

Also, Dave Kuhlman has a nice Quixote tutorial; see .  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 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.
