If you are wanting to do this from scratch, it's actually a pretty involved process.

These two courses would give you a good starting part for building that kind of functionality, but you may have to take the beginner PHP courses first if you don't have a lot of programming experience. Building a production-level system like this is not for the faint-of-heart and will require a lot of work to make it both functional and secure. With enough time spent learning and practicing you can do definitely do it, but if you need something quickly, Wordpress or another bundled CMS may be the way to go.
