App Development: Server side solution

My friend is developing an Android App which needs to store data. He is fine with android app.
Context: He needed to communicate app to his CMS sever through Web services (RESTful) and store data in MongoDB (Looking for NoSql database).
Problem: Which sever and language to server PHP or anything other open source solution. Which can communicate with android app over RESTful and save data in MongoDb and the publish over web (Primarily to some specific user (Let say only admin / mods), not all app users ).

Hello Anoop,

You can use MongoDB + Node.js + Express.js +Nginx(optional) for the server side coding and use Handlebar.js for templating the frontend page in Node.js

If you are not comfortable with Express.js there are more option out there:

you can jump-start your project with this boilerplate: Mega Boilerplate - Handcrafted starter projects, optimized for simplicity and ease of use

Good Luck. 👍
