I was going to use LC Server until I realized there was a built in httpd
server library present in LC 9.... I ditched LC server.... mainly because
it smokes LC server in performance.  Just bringing to awareness all your
options.

http library is so simple to use with callbacks for each request.  its so
awesome.  good luck.
