Put your articles in a database.

Work smarter, not harder.

Ha, I always thought that news papers put long articles on paper..... ;)

Anyway, yes, a database makes sense. It's the best option if you want to serve multiple users at the same time. Text files don't scale out pretty well, are difficult to maintain, difficult to search through and order, etc.

Basically, you should collect important info (title, summary, body text, publication date, etc.) from an HTML form and then send it to the database. You can use databases like Access, SQL Server, MySQL, etc.
