lighttpd is a secure, fast, compliant, and very flexible web-server that has been optimized for high-performance environments. It has a very low memory footprint compared to other webservers and takes care of cpu-load. 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.

We have nothing to hide, so please use our bugtracker for all kinds of bugs you find (hopefully not too much :-)), if you feel you shouldn´t make it public you can also mail to: security (at) lighttpd (dot) net.
