I have a data logger (electrical meter for a building) that is capable of pushing data to a server URL. The technical documents state that the logger uses HTML POST and it will transmit the data in XML format.

I have a Python script that I want try and use that will parse the data from XML to CSV, but I dont know what I need to do on the server to make it ready to accept the HTML POST.

Do I need to setup the server as an HTML server? Any recommendations for this would be greatly appreciated...
