If you want a ready-to-use server (without having to set up
your own web server).... you may find that Snakelets
(http://snakelets.sourceforge.net) may very well suit your
needs. Creating a dynamic site, and login-protected pages,
is a snap.

Hmm... if you want only a little part of the website to be
dynamic, you can either:
- just serve it as static content trough snakelets too
- use snakelets behind Apache configured to proxy only some
requests to snakelets. And serve the static stuff with Apache.
Snakelets is not mature / production quality code (although
it has been running on a low/medium-traffic site of mine for
nearly a month now without interruption). If you want something
more mainstream, you may ignore this message ;-)
