Welcome to Lighttpd

Description

lighttpd (pronounced /lighty/) is a secure, fast, compliant, and very flexible web-server that has been optimized for high-performance environments.

Its advanced feature-set (FastCGI, CGI, Auth, Output-Compression, URL-Rewriting and many more) make lighttpd the perfect webserver-software for every server that suffers load problems.
