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.
[code lang=”bash”]yum install lighttpd -s
[code lang=”bash”]service lighttpd start[/code]
To start server on boot run:
[code lang=”bash”]chkconfig lighttpd on[/code]
[code lang=”bash”]service lighttpd stop[/code]
Browse to the machine IP address or hostname and you’ll see the flylight welcome page.
