Hi:

I have to write a simple provisioning server. It will be required to process very large amount of data. This is on mobile space. I am currently in study phase. The language of my choice would be C++. I wanted to ask which web server would be suitable for my implementation.

The plantform is ubuntu linux. Which web server allows for easy C++ integration.  Some help to these questions would be greatly appreciated.

Best Regards

Apache would do what you want, best way forward in my opinion

Any web server that supports CGI should do.

I prefer Hiawatha for that purpose, since it is simple, secure and has only a small footprint (Apache usually is overkill) - see http://www.hiawatha-webserver.org/

Oh, and yes: It is also GPLed.

@jkr with all due respect i do not think that it is an overkill as it will give more option

again you can try either and see what it fits best for you

I'd never doubt that Apache is a great and mighty piece of software - yet sometimes less is more, especially since 'mobile' was mentioned in the question. For a simple solution, where you just need the server to execute CGI and deliver HTML, you won't need all these configurable modules that make Apache as mighty as it is and relatively complicated to install and configure.

Hi:

Thanks for all the responses. The webserver would also act as customer portal. You login using your phone number and you check you current bill etc.

It would also be a provisioning engine and would do billing as well. So please let me know your comments.

Best Regards,

Well, technically speaking any web server will do for that - if you need something lightweght, go for Hiawatha, if not, Apache is fine for sure.
