Hi Jim,

I suggest considering the following:

Web server: something that supports WSGI, such as tornado or Apache with 

Web app: Flask (easy to get started, lower learning curve than Django).

Database: sqlite. You can access it though sqlite3 module in the 
standard library. If you prefer a higher-level interface, look at 
SQLAlchemy with the sqlite backend.
