Reduce Apache's Load With lighttpd On Debian Etch

Reduce Apache's Load With lighttpd On Debian Etch

Lighttpd, sometimes pronounced "Lighty", is a lightweight HTTP server that can help alleviate Apache's load by serving static content. Since Lighttpd uses less resources per request than Apache, it generally serves most static content faster than Apache. This tutorial shows how to install Lighttpd behind Apache via Apache´s proxy module.

Installing Lighttpd With PHP5 And MySQL Support On Fedora 8

Installing Lighttpd With PHP5 And MySQL Support On Fedora 8

Lighttpd is a secure, fast, standards-compliant web server designed for speed-critical environments. This tutorial shows how you can install Lighttpd on a Fedora 8 server with PHP5 support (through FastCGI) and MySQL support.

Splitting lighttpd Logs With vlogger And Creating Statistics With Webalizer

Splitting lighttpd Logs With vlogger And Creating Statistics With Webalizer

Vlogger is a little tool with which you can write lighttpd logs broken down by virtual hosts and days. With vlogger, we need to put just one accesslog.filename directive into our global lighttpd configuration, and it will write access logs for each virtual host and day. Therefore, you do not have to split lighttpd's overall access log into access logs for each virtual host each day, and you do not have to configure lighttpd to write one access log per virtual host (which could make you run out of file descriptors very fast). At the end of this tutorial I will show you how to use webalizer to create statistics from the lighttpd access logs.

How To Enable Multiple HTTPS Sites For One IP On Debian Etch Using TLS Extensions

How To Enable Multiple HTTPS Sites For One IP On Debian Etch Using TLS Extensions

This how-to is Debian specific but could be ported to other distributions since the concept is the same. In order to use TLS Extensions we have to patch and recompile apache2 and recompile OpenSSL with the enable-tlsext directive. Since TLS Extensions are relatively new, some internet browsers will not work so the apache2 server will deliver just the default site as http 1.0 does on an http 1.1 server.
