Introduction

Lighttpd is an open-source web server optimized for speed-critical environments while remaining standards-compliant, secure and flexible. The low memory footprint (compared to other web servers), small CPU load and speed optimizations make lighttpd suitable for servers that are suffering load problems, or for serving static media separately from the dynamic content. lighttpd is free and open-source software and is distributed under the BSD license. It runs natively on Unix-like operating systems and Microsoft Windows. lighttpd supports the FastCGI, SCGI and CGI interfaces to external programs, allowing web applications written in any programming language to be used with the server.

Prerequisites: The status mod should be enabled.
