You need a web server.  You say you already have nginx; I'm not familiar with 
this, but it probably will do what you need.  Read the documentation to find 
out where CGI scripts should be placed by default.  Note that most Linux 
distributions standardise the locations of things like this across several 
packages; so whichever webserver you installed, CGI scripts will always be in 
the same folder.  And if you installed from your distribution's repository, 
this might not be in the same place mentioned in the documentation for the 
"pristine" package.  So when searching, be sure to mention your distribution 
by name.

Simplest ever CGI script:

---------- >8 ----------
echo "Content-type: text/plain"
echo ""
exit 0
---------- 8< ----------

Save this in your cgi-bin folder, give it 755 permissons  (so anybody can read 
and execute it),  and call it up from a desktop machine on your LAN.  Keep re-
reading the instructions until you get it working without a 500 error.

Now you just need to write a script in your favourite language to pull out the 
bits you want and display the result.  Don't forget to begin with a content-
type declaration followed by a blank line.
