BOA webserver

Sat May 19, 2012 3:26 pm

This is an excellent web server - available as a package straight from usual repository, easy to configure.
Performance on a RPi is amazing, I am now using to test CGI based apps.

If you want a straight forward web server this is one to look at.

i'd go with nginx - very fast, well tested and works with php-cgi.

I'm planning on running nginx because it seems to be lightweight, and something that has more real world applications making learning it more useful imo.

Wikipedia has a good list of lightweight web servers here: ... eb_servers
