Lighttpd, 9781847192103 (1847192106), Packt Publishing, 2008

LightTPD is a secure, flexible, and most importantly, light web server designed and optimized for high performance environments. It is open-source and licensed under the revised BSD license. Its event-driven architecture optimized for a large number of parallel connections, its advanced features (FastCGI, CGI, Auth, Output Compression, URL Rewriting, and many more), and its small memory footprint compared to other web servers, make LightTPD the perfect server software for every web server that suffers load problems or for serving static media separately from dynamic content.

LightTPD supports the FastCGI, SCGI, and CGI interfaces to external programs, permitting web applications written in any programming language to be used with this server. Excellent performance for PHP, a particularly popular language, has received special attention. Additionally, LightTPD has become popular within the Ruby on Rails community.

Pen-and-Paper User Interfaces: Integrating Printed and Digital Documents (Human-Computer Interaction Series)
Pen-and-Paper User Interfaces: Integrating Printed and Digital Documents (Human-Computer Interaction Series)

Even at the beginning of the 21st century, we are far from becoming paperless. Pen and paper is still the only truly ubiquitous information processing technology. Pen-and-paper user interfaces bridge the gap between paper and the digital world. Rather than replacing paper with electronic media, they seamlessly integrate both worlds in a...

A Practical Guide to Data Structures and Algorithms using Java
A Practical Guide to Data Structures and Algorithms using Java

Although traditional texts present isolated algorithms and data structures, they do not provide a unifying structure and offer little guidance on how to appropriately select among them. Furthermore, these texts furnish little, if any, source code and leave many of the more difficult aspects of the implementation as exercises. A fresh...

Bridging Laboratory and Field Research for Genetic Control of Disease Vectors (Wageningen UR Frontis Series)
Bridging Laboratory and Field Research for Genetic Control of Disease Vectors (Wageningen UR Frontis Series)

Contemporary research on genetic control of disease-transmitting insects knows two kinds of scientists: those that work in the laboratory and those known as ‘field people’. Over the last decade, both groups seem to have developed differing research priorities, address fundamentally different aspects within the overall discipline...
