There's probably a reason that the three php-digikam projects mentioned 
earlier haven't seen any updates for several years...

A few more things to keep in mind: 
- A web interface to your entire image collection will show exactly that: your 
entire collection, duplicate and intermediate images included. Probably much 
more than you want to show the world.
- All thumbnails for each album will have to be transmitted (in first 
approximation). Probably many more than needed in practice.
- Your image collection will mostly consist of full-sized originals (raw files 
or camera jpegs). For web use, that means a lot of network traffic: with 
modern cameras, even a quarter-size embedded jpeg is easily 5-6 Mpixels, for 
display sizes closer to 2-3 Mpixels.
