I'd like to begin development of a web app that allows online competitive video game players to participate in ranked competition for games which do not support any type of ranking system natively.

I'm new to development. I have almost no experience with server-side development. The results of my research on this are somewhat vague, or rather the scope seems rather large and I'm not sure where to begin. Can anyone direct me to useful server-side development resources which will aid me in developing the skills and knowledge necessary to implement my web app idea?
