    Just a quick question, Carpo.

    Lighttpd or Apache, your opinion.

    Which one is safer out of the box?


    This is for my debian setup.

    both as as safe as you make them, according to what i have been told lighttpd uses less in resources, apache runs under nouser and nogrp i believe, lighttpd runs under www

    either runs under whatever user you tell them.

    Apache is easier for php support, lighttpd has advantages though :)

    FastCGI + PHP + Lighttpd is just as easy.

    Nginx is also pretty interesting, I've not setup a PHP FastCGI for it yet but then I've only just started playing.

    sounds like it might be worth a look

    Draw from the experiences of what people who run much busier sites than many will ever run ... use the strengths of both. For example, Apache for front-end processing and have lighttpd behind the scenes streaming media, pictures, thumbnails, etc. I believe that is what Youtube does, at least for thumbnails from articles I've read in the past. Of course you can run completely off lighttpd if it provides all the features you need. I believe Pirate Bay, one of the largest trackers in the world uses lighttpd.
