lighttpd

19 Sep 2005 • 1 min read

Just changed my web server from Apache over to lighttpd. Wasn't that much of a chore, just had to emerge 1.4.4 so that I get working ldap authentication via ssl/tls and emerge dev-lang/php with the cgi USE flag and voila.The site seems to be a bit snapper - especially horde as php no longer seems to segfault with iconv/utf8 errors 8).Why did I change? Well, apache changing things around annoyed me and it takes a long time to emerge it. lighttpd is smaller, so less time emerging! Plus it's got a smaller memory footprint, so my server doesn't complain too much 😃
