Web Development + Open Source

Andy Rama asked:

Open original thread
This might be the same question for most of you. But as after googling I got confused a lot, so finally I decided to put this question.
I am looking for Open Source + Web Development
(considering in mind Database, Images, DB Search, Network security, in case E-commerce, step by step).

I have listed below the few things I found after googling, (I don't know the purpose and use of many of things listed below, but I have to learn them if I needed).

Web Development Software bundle : LAMP

WYSIWYG Tools : Netbeans, KompoZer

Client Side Coding : Ajax, Flash, JavaScript, JQuery, Microsoft Silverlight, HTML5 and CSS3,

Server Side Coding : CSP, CGI, Groovy, Java, Lotus Domina (open), Perl (open), PHP (open), Python (open), Read studio, Ruby (open), Smalltalk, SSJS

Client + Server side : Google Web Toolkit, Opa, Pyjamas, Tersus

Database Technology : Apache Derby, Firebird, MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite

So many web development langauges and so many tools for them; I am lost in those, unware of how to start web development/website (keeping aside steps of Domain Name and Web Host .... presently I am focusing on steps of Web Pages Designing and Testing).

Please guide me to start a website, to start a proper web development, to propely select the languages and tools right from the beginning of web development.
And also please recommend good reference to follow for running a web site, for doing web development.

I am asking above question as a general for any kind of website development. Though just for additional reference, I am planning to build a website with user login, stores details of users and their photos, search by details and E-commarace if needed in future.
I had learned HTML & little about CSS, JSP 5 years back, but just for academic purpose, not done any kind web development ealier.
I know software development on Windows and Linux using C++.

I appreciate your help.
