have knowledge on HTML Basics, however I basically have no programming/web development.
I want to develop a file sharing site, where it allows users to create "hubs" and allowing users to download things from their "hub".
Can this be achieved in PHP? I know Reddit is built on Python, but I don't know the particular framework. People tell me PHP is a mess for a "noob" but is a great program with millions of extensions when the programmer becomes quite skilled.
I'm somewhat confused, do I develop in Apache/Codeigniter or do I have to develop in PHP and somehow implement my code in to a web framework.
What about Database Design, what is it and would I need it? Do I buy servers so users can upload their files or are their dedicated online web servers on which I can buy bandwidth?
I hear Python is a great program, hence it's known to be fairly easy and "noob" friendly contrary to Ruby/PHP. However, I can't justify this at all since I've never done neither.
Any Good Books?
P.S.S-I posted on Reddit, and they basically told me to **** off, I thought I would ask for help on a dedicated Web Developer Forum.
Someone care to give me the systematic process of developing a File Sharing Website and the Programs I need to learn?
Thanks & God Bless
