Well, I think after you finish your MySQL Class you can start on your session/authorization classes. Since most developers primary mission in creating a CMS is to manage their users, I find that the user related scripts need to follow the database scripts.
After the session/authorization classes, are written, you can start on the index.php which should act as the traffic control agent for your system. index.php should direct the script to the classes and functions that will be used for the user's request.
Once you have the index started, you can work on the template class. Since the template is very much dependent upon the action you are performing, it will be a continuous project.
Maybe I do things differently than everyone else but I like to work on a section of code and get it to work then build on that for the next section. For example, I usually hard code some sample output for whatever action I am coding then if it works, I modify the code to use the template and of course, I add the proper code to the template class to make it work.
Another thing, go ahead and manually add content items to you database and when the frontend system works correctly, then design the backend system for the administration of the CMS.
