thttpd - tiny/turbo/throttling HTTP server version 2.28 of 04Feb2018

thttpd is a simple, small, portable, fast, and secure HTTP server.

Simple: It handles only the minimum necessary to implement HTTP/1.1.

Small: See the size comparison chart at http://www.acme.com/software/thttpd/notes.html#sizes. It also has a very small run-time size, since it does not fork and is very careful about memory allocation.

Portable: It compiles cleanly on FreeBSD 2.x/3.x, SunOS 4.1.x, Solaris 2.x, BSD/OS 2.x, Linux 1.2.x, OSF/1 (on a 64-bit Alpha), and no doubt many others.

Fast: In typical use it's about as fast as the best full-featured servers (Apache, NCSA, Netscape). Under extreme load it's much faster.

Secure: It goes to great lengths to protect the web server machine against attacks and breakins from other sites.

It also has one extremely useful feature (URL-traffic-based throttling) that no other server currently has.

See the manual entry for more details. See the INSTALL file for configuration and installation instructions. Check the web page (http://www.acme.com/software/thttpd/) for updates, or add yourself to the mailing list by sending a "subscribe" to [email protected]
