Pretty much any of the Haskell web frameworks listen on a port, accept
HTTP requests and fork a new GHC thread into a handler. I'm more
familiar with the Happstack/Snap approach to writing handlers
(although the Snap approach is evolving away from Happstack), and a
lot of people have good luck with Yesod.

Happstack crash course: http://happstack.com/docs/crashcourse/index.html
Snap quickstart: http://snapframework.com/docs/quickstart
Installing and starting yesod in five minutes:

In particular, I know that the folks working on yesod have spent a lot
of time on documentation.
