The first step is to plan your application..

I would suggested before you begin designing your application, download the ones i suggested and have a look at the features they have and which ones you would like to include in your application.

I would suggest using a framework like http://framework.zend.com/ that will give you alot of built in functionality.

After that the steps are

design a solution approach
develop code
test
deploy
then test again and again ...

Will your db performance match your db growth?

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.

shang3000:

From scratch it is a rather big task (if you are wanting to build a descent one), and as mentioned planning is always the first step, and familiarizing yourself with exactly what your task is, and the specifications of the project.

There's even a step by step book guiding you on how to build one, if you are really serious about this project:
