[erlang-questions] The most better Erlang web server!

It really depends on what you need - there are several choices for
HTTP servers: yaws, mochiweb, and mislutin. Easy enough for you to run
some simple flood tests using a tool like Tsung
(http://tsung.erlang-projects.org/) to see which meets your needs. I
suspect, to get up-and-running, it really doesn't matter which one you
go with. Of course there are differences - I don't mean to suggest
there aren't, but in the early stages of building an app, it shouldn't
become a sticking point.

There are also different frameworks built on top of these servers.
Nitrogen seems aimed at building webapps out-of-the-box and letting
Nitrogen do the heavy lifting (like providing APIs for Ajax, Comet,
form submission, etc). Webmachine's architecture is built around
delivering RESTful services. Zotonic is a content-management system
(CMS), so that's an entirely different domain.

I'm sure there are others I've missed, but speaking as a newcomer to
Erlang myself, I've found it very easy to get up-and-running on any of
these servers and frameworks, using rebar and their quick-start
guides. Play around and see what works for you.
