If you only agreed on doing a design then i think the client should handle this, especially if you have no experience in programming (based on what i quoted above i assume that you have no or not much experience with php coding).
Or you could still tackle it and go search for some easy php+mysql tutorials. It's a perfect test if you are starting out with php+mysql programming.
