Started a tiny discussion here:

http://www.perkiset.org/forum/nuix_osx/lightpd-t235.0.html

but it never went anywhere. I was unimpressed.

My configuration is really simple, it's about all you need:


./configure \
   --enable-lib64 \
   --libdir=/usr/lib64 \
   --enable-rewrite \
   --enable-ssl \
   --enable-proxy \
   --enable-so


Note that the lib64 stuff is because I'm on all 64bit boxes now.

HATE lighttpd.

It sends strange Continue: headers and you have to modify your browser libs to work correctly with it (when writing scripts to post to a form on a server running it).

 What headers are weird vsloathe?

 I'm using it, and haven't noticed. It comes with lxadmin, and seems to reduce memory and CPU overhead (at least with static pages).

Continue:

It has a weird issue where cURL won't follow its blank Continue: headers so you have to manually force it to do it.

I was hired to work on a nix box running it and I was amazed at the pounding it was taking. Nerd

I was intrigued until I looked at the price ... $1200 per YEAR for the thing... I suppose if you have a processing intensive, high traffic app that must reside on a single box that might be attractive, but MAN that's a big nut for your average joe.
