Lighttpd - For My Server

Jun 17, 2008

i have small - mid size forum

1) 25k members with 100 - 125 members / guest being online at all times. about 400,000 page views per month
2) software pages static html about 200,000 page views per month.
3) a script library which get about 200,000 page views per month
4) i get about 2000 - 2500 software downloads per day. each download between 1mb to 3 mb give or take

i would estimate a total of 1 million page views per month...

a) i am using Apache right now would lighttpd help?
b) if yes, how does one go about switching from Apache to Lighthtpd
c) is it easy to manage and optimize lighttpd?
d) can i just ask for lighttpd to be installed as default by any hosting company out there?
e) does lighttpd support cPanel?

currently i am on a AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+(2 Ghz) with 2 GB RAM.

my server loads are sky high - anywhere between 10, 15 and 20.

Lighttpd / Apache - Restarting The Server

May 30, 2009

We've been thinking about writing our own hosting control panel for our own
"tight" hosting setup, so that can alter the panel just to our needs without relying on updates from anybody else.

To read new configurations in Lighttpd or Apache, as far as I know, requires the software to be restarted (for example service apache restart). Are there any negative effects of this, I'm assuming that whilst being restarted there is a small amount of time during which the software is "down" and websites can't be accessed during that period (probably <1 second). Am I correct?

What is the best way to reload configurations into these http servers without service interruption? I notice that DirectAdmin seems to just restart Apache on any function that alters the configuration file - for example adding a new user.

Setting Up Download Server With Lighttpd

Aug 8, 2008

to getting a second server, specifically for downloads for my site. Without going into too much detail, my website requires that I get a separate server for downloads, and another for the webserver.

I've already gone ahead and configured the server I want; however, I'm trying to do something different from what I'm used to. I'd like to use Lighttpd, instead of apache, as well as not having cPanel installed on the server. I'd still have cPanel and Apache on my regular webserver, but I'd rather keep my download server relatively clean.

So, once I get my server, and I install Lighttpd, how do I go about setting up everything so that my two servers can communicate? I'd like the download server to be something like: download.mydomain.com , so would I have to set up an A Hostname on my webserver?

What are the steps I should take?

Apache Vs Lighttpd

Aug 9, 2009

Until recently, it seemed like everything I read about a server indicated that Apache was king. I have never read anything that has given me any reason not to use Apache.

However, about a year ago when I discovered Django, I discovered Lighttpd. From everything I've been able to read, Lighttpd seems to be a better web server, but still don't know very much at all about Lighttpd.

I'm fairly comfortable with Apache, although I've never cared much for it. I have a feeling that I'll like Lighttpd quite a bit more from the very little that I do know about it. I'm wondering if I should even consider switching.

For one, it seems that everyone knows how to work with Apache and Lighttpd seems to be far less common. Apache also seems to be much more established which leads me to believe that it's a safer choice. Nonetheless, I still really want to give Lighttpd a shot. And, judging from what I've seen about Django and Lighttpd, Lighttpd seems to be a better choice when working with Django.

What do you think? Should I stick with Apache since I already know how to use it? Is Lighttpd worth the time to learn or is Apache just too good?

Lighttpd Crashing

Nov 12, 2008

I keep getting a segmentation fault after a few hours when I leave lighttpd on. It doesn't seem like much resources are being used and its serving about 60mbit/s. There's nothing in the error or log file.

I'm using CentOS 2.6.18-92.1.13.el5
and
lighttpd-1.5.0-r1992
Here's the config:
server.modules = (
"mod_access",
"mod_trigger_b4_dl",
"mod_status",
"mod_proxy_core",
"mod_proxy_backend_fastcgi",
"mod_uploadprogress"
)
upload-progress.progress-url = "/progress"
server.network-backend = "gthread-aio"
server.max-fds = 15000
server.max-connections = 10000
server.event-handler = "linux-sysepoll"
I've actually been having this issue since I've moved to lighttpd 1.5, 1.4 was working fine but I need the features in 1.5. I've tried changing the event handler and network backend to no avail.

How can I at least find out what's causing the error?

Lighttpd With MySqli

Lighttpd Not Work Well With Php

Nov 9, 2007

Lighttpd works well with static file.

But for php, it's totally not good for me
I just install lighttpd and php.

By [url]

Now It takes about 10 seconds for the
server to response.

Here is a part of config file
############ Options you really have to take care of
####################
server.max-keep-alive-requests = 4
server.max-keep-alive-idle = 4
server.max-read-idle = 60
server.max-write-idle = 1024
server.max-fds = 8192

php.ini using the default one
Here is the link to it
[url]

And only about 200 connections. the load average is only 0.02.

When I check the error log
2007-11-08 12:38:46: (server.c.1253) NOTE: a request for
/view_video.php?viewkey=f8e13f14b405e038deb6&page=&viewtype=&category=

Lighttpd Proxy

Would it be possible to have this kind of setup?

Lighttpd running on port 80 to serve only static content, and if it receives php requests, to forward the request to Apache running on another port. Not sure if this is useful [url]

Lighttpd URL Rewrite

Dec 24, 2007

I would like to use Lighttpd to rewrite and proxy as in this example:

1) There is no [url]download on server.

2) [url] => proxy => Apache 2.2 on same server to [url]

3) *.php should be handled by Lighttpd, however, the reason I want *.php5 to be done by Apache is due to compatibility issues.

proxy.server = ( ".php5" =>
( "localhost" =>
(
"host" => "XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX",
"port" => 81
)
)
)

The reason is because I don't want people to see .php5 file

Does this work using url.rewrite? If so how to do it?

I already have the following in lighttpd.conf, should the url.rewrite be placed in side of this?

$HTTP["host"] =~ "^domain.com$" {
url.redirect = ( "^/(.*)" => [url])
}
