How can I learn how to develop web apps?

I took a few years of computer programming in school so I know the fundamentals of functional programming and the syntax for C-family languages. I remember the basics of object oriented design, and a little bit about memory management. I can do all the exercises in the Poignant guide to Ruby and Python the Hard Way without incident. I know enough HTML to throw together a GeoCities site, and I have a passing familiarity with CSS. I know next to nothing about dealing with servers. How can I turn my minimal and outdated knowledge into a useful and buzzword-compliant web app? What is the best resource to learn "how to build a basic CMS" the way that I learned how to make QBASIC play blackjack?
