Well, I don't want to discourage you (or be a jerk) but when you state
that you "don't know HTML" it seems like any web-based project is going
to be way, way, way over your head.
There are a million ways to accomplish the site you want. Using a
framework would be better for many people, but you'd have to learn the
framework. If you want to learn as little as possible, then you might
want to make some simple CGI scripts but that approach will require
learning about how Apache works (at least a bit). You could also use PHP.
