There are several web application written in Lisp.

In addition to Araneida or PortableAllegroServe (web server layer),
you could use UncommonWeb.

There's a UCW tutorial: http://www.cliki.net/ucw%20Tutorial

In addition to the tutorial (eg. http://www.gigamonkeys.com/book/)
the Common Lisp Reference 
you should also read the documentation of your implementation:
