For write a http server from scratch, you may use LuaSocket. But, if you
need a complete server, just try Xavante, a webserver written in Lua from
the Kepler Platform, and lighttpd, which is a nice and fast webserver
that embeds Lua. Also, you may use libhttpd (a C library).

What about the Reference Manual? It gives a good overview of Lua and a
complete description of the API. Also, there is PiL2 (Programming in Lua,
2nd edition) and Beginning to Lua Programming.
