For your first question: "what http server of odoo is", it is \Werkzeug   . But as a Odoo developer, I have never dealt with this directly. I use Odoo Controller instead. (Take a look at document page). If you need to run Odoo on port 80, use nginx as proxy server.

"Can I install application and database on two diffrence server?"

Yes, you can.
First, you should install Odoo and Postgres on 2 servers, enable remote access 

And then use db_host parameter of Odoo server and point it to Postgres IP or server name.

In my opinion, odoo system need a webserver like Apache or some thing like that. So, what webserver is odoo using?

Installation guide can be found at:


Odoo uses postgre database to store the data. I haven't done the setup but should be easy enough to host this database on a separate server. I assume modifying the "db_host" parameter of server configuration will enable connection to a remote database. Refer to the following for server configuration information.
