Installing Lighttpd on Centos 6.3 is Easy!


Security, speed, compliance, and flexibility — all of these describe lighttpd (pronounced lighty) which is rapidly redefining efficiency of a webserver; as it is designed and optimized for high performance environments.
With a small memory footprint compared to other web-servers, effective management of the cpu-load, and advanced feature set (FastCGI, SCGI, Auth, Output-Compression, URL-Rewriting and many more) it is the perfect solution for every server that is suffering load problems.And best of all it’s Open Source licensed under the revised BSD license.


yum install lighttpd -s


Starting Server

service lighttpd start

Have Fun!
