>>  Hi all,
>>  We have recently been working on a research project looking into the possibilities for creating a lightweight server component that can easily enable Qt applications to serve over HTTP. We would like to make this work public and therefore request a repository.

Purpose of HTTP server is to handle requests from clients by HTTP protocol and send replies according to some business logic. It may also include built-in capability of serving static files.

That would be application server, for running PHP application in this case.

> Perhaps making it easy to serve a RESTful QObject-based hierarchy?

That would be some web framework then, not mere HTTP server
