dhttpd - Minimal webserver without cgi-bin support.
dhttpd is a program that started out as a small project to write a
simple server that could not be hacked, i.e. one that doesn’t allow cgi
scripts, and one that didn’t require a permanent IP address to use
properly. When this server was completed and it was in working
condition, it was realized that it was memory efficient, low profile,
quick, and served the one need for an HTTP daemon: to transmit files.
dhttpd does not support generating directory listings for you. for a
directory, it will give the index.html, if it exists, or it will give
an error. dhttpd doesn’t support logging, cgi, or public_html
directories. It’s intended to be a very minimal web server.
Set the port the web server runs on http://servername/
Serve requests under this directory. The default location to
serve files from is /var/www/. You will need an index.html if
you want to be able to use exactly that location. If not, you
have to enter the file name too.
