Looking for Raspberry Pi Web Solution

I am trying to create a kiosk that will boot to a webpage and give the viewer (touchscreen monitor) the ability to select a pdf and swipe browse it using an existing apache server and php/mysql/java/flash scripting.  The pdf rendering should be full screen and the ability to swipe right or left to "flip the pages" like a real book would be a must.  If the screen had a navigation section that would allow for pdf selection from a small list and page up/down options that would probably work as well as the whole "swipe" method.

I have another post here trying to solve this problem with a local pdf viewer application but I am thinking my web server might be a better way to serve up the content to multiple raspberry pi's like this first one.

Thank you in advance for any thoughts/directions/scripts anyone has to offer.

I would suggest going big with using DAV storage like subversion for storage (and Apache). What do you think?

I am sorry but I do not see how that is related to a php/jquery script problem.

WebDAV is somewhat easier visible as system storage than a website.
Bu you can use pdf.js served from webserver too.

Ahh, I see now.  While that is a very interesting platform, we have internal to our company network a server that hosts files and pages for various things within our network.  I am merely trying to produce a simple pdf browsing php web page to a simple device.  I am not in a position to reinvent the wheel as it were.

If you push pdf.js from webserver you test at no cost, and need only chromium in fullscreen...
