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 :)

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

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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
