I would like to generate a licence file using lua code involving some
information from a website. So if user goes to my website, makes some choices
and enters his personal data, this information should be passed to a lua

information and generates a licence file. This licence file should then be
send to the user (via e-mail or download).

My question is not about the lua script itself but I don't know whether it is
possible to run a lua script on a webserver. Can you give me some hint
whether this is possible and what it required to get it running? Also, is it
likely that my hoster ( will allow me to run a lua script on
my website?

I wrote a guide to use Orbit [1] with Apache [2]. How this can get you started.
Here is a small article about how to use Orbit as well [3].
