    Default Architecture of big sites

    Hi,<BR><BR>I&#039;ve been thinking about starting an ambicious project - a web portal. I want to start up with a simple generic portal that, at first, would be based on content, featuring some channels that cover different topics.<BR><BR>Anyway, the thing is I&#039;m really lost about the way to start it up. How to plan something bigger, what to do first... is there a standard way of thinking when it comes to something like this?<BR>Where can I find more information about structuring big sites, whether it&#039;s a portal or a big corporate network?
