QtWebApp allows you to write standalone Web server applications in C++ as easily as Java Servlets. The HTTP 1.1 server supports persistent connections, sessions with cookies, and file uploads. It contains a template engine and a logger that can be configured at runtime. The application runs on Unix as a daemon, on Windows as a service, and on all operating systems on the command line. It is based on Nokia QT 4.7. Compatibility with QT 4.8 and 5.0 has been verified successfully.

More features of interest: built-in support for databases via JDBC; integrated localization facilities; sophisticated caching capabilities; support of sessions, multi-part forms, and file uploads; support of third-party libraries; a Web-based management interface; and so on.
NXWEB is ultra-fast and super-lightweight web server for applications written in C. It can serve thousands of concurrent requests with a small memory footprint using an event-driven and multi-threaded model that is designed to scale. It features an exceptionally light code base, a simple API, decent HTTP protocol handling, keep-alive connections, SSL support (via GNUTLS), HTTP proxy (with keep-alive connection pooling), non-blocking sendfile support (with configurable small file memory cache), cacheable gzip content encoding, cacheable image thumbnails with watermarks (via ImageMagick), a modular design for developers, and the ability to run as a daemon.
WAWAS is a full PHP application server. The main server core listens to any IP/port and passes data to any mounted protocol on the listener. Implemented protocols are HTTP1.1/1.0, Comet, Telnet, DNS, mail, and FTP. Each protocol runs modules that build response data based on the requests. Memory object persistence allows data and caches to be shared across protocols or time. All configuration uses XML. It can be launched as a daemon, with or without forked workers, and is nearly as fast as Apache in preliminary tests.
