Hey coders...

So I think I finally want to buckle down and work on my site.  But I've been so out of the web development side of things I am not sure where to begin.  I would to try and build from scratch with minimal help from GUI based editors.  I will be doing most of the work from the Mac.  A friend of mine suggested emacs as the editor of choice, but he is a ruby nut so I am looking for other suggestions for editors.

Also I am looking to accomplish 2 major objectives...

1) main blog page
2) Photo Gallery

These are to start, not sure what else I may.  Does anyone have any decent references on where to start?  Looked around on the intarwebs but didn't have exactly what I was looking for.  The hosting platform is linux with MySQL databases (so I suppose LAMP).

Thanks for any assistance, also the i am hoping to get my coding skills up to speed by doing this.  I like to learn by having some sort of tangible goal.

Re: Hey coders...

http://www.amazon.com/PHP-MySQL-Web-Dev ... evelopment is probably the best single resource I've seen to get up to speed on web development.

I'd just go with WordPress if I were you. You can still get plenty of coding challenges if you create your own theme and customize it how you want.

Re: Hey coders...

I ran my own server and ran wordpress for years, and I highly recommend both if you are planning on having a site that if going to get traffic or you are interested in learning.

For me though, I finally got sick of the all the admin time on keeping everything up to date on the server for a personal site that get next to no traffic and moved to google sites...

Yeah, I know what people are going to say, but I don't have to keep doing sys/web admin stuff when I come home now.

Re: Hey coders...

Thanks everyone!  I appreciate the input.  Yeah DataDwarf, I hear ya.  Right now it is just to get me back in the coding saddle and give me something to mess around with.  I am sure at some point I will be bored with maintaining it, but for now I want to learn a bit more about locking a site down to better understand Web App Security principles.  Sometimes it is more meaningful to actually do it than tell people how to do it.  :D

Re: Hey coders...

And when you inevitably introduce vulnerabilities, you may get to practice incident response. Win-win ;D

Re: Hey coders...

Already do in a not so hands on capacity, well not introduce the vulnerability, but handle the incident response. Unfortunately I am not the one who gets to make any changes, simply coordinate (oh how I love outsourced environments :p

At least I will be able to get my hands around my own stuff.
