mini-httpd is a minimalistic web server designed for optimal performance, high security, and as little use of system resources as possible. Unlike most other web servers, mini-httpd does not require more than one process or system thread in order to handle several requests concurrently. The current set of features includes:

1. HTTP/1.1 compliant "keep-connection" support.

2. Virtual hosting.

3. Recording all successful requests in the common Apache-style log-file format.

4. The ability to run in a chroot(2) sandbox.

5. Dropping all super-user privileges after acquiring the listening socket.

6. mini-httpd is configured entirely through the command line. There is no config file.

mini-httpd is limited to serving static pages from the hard disk. There is no support for CGI scripts or any kind of dynamic content. If you need a more sophisticated set-up, this software is not for you. If you really, really need additional features, well, you have the source code.
