thttpd (the tiny/turbo/throttling HTTP server)
thttpd is a simple, small, portable, fast, and secure HTTP server.
Simple: It handles only the minimum necessary to implement HTTP/1.1.
Well, maybe a little more than the minimum. Small: It has a very
small run-time size, since it does not fork and is very careful about
memory allocation. Portable: It compiles cleanly on most any
Unix-like OS. Fast: In typical use it's about as fast as the best
full-featured servers. Secure: It goes to great lengths to protect
the web server machine against attacks and breakins from other sites.
By default the directory to serve through HTTP will be '/var/www/thttpd',
if you want to change it execute the SalckBuild for example as:
# WEBDIR='/opt/www' sh thttpd.SlackBuild
To build and use this package the user/group 'thttpd' is required to
exists in your system. You can add it with:
# groupadd -g 232 thttpd
# useradd -u 232 -g 232 -c "User for thttpd" -d / -s /bin/false thttpd
