PacktPub never let's me down, and did they ever live up to their goal of packing books full with this one.
Don't let the small size fool you, this book has everything you need to know to install, setup, configure, tweak, and secure Lighttpd.
If you don't know what Lighttpd is then you really need this book. Lighttpd is a smaller, faster, more secure web server, like Apache, only better.
Andre Bogus really breaks down what is great about Lighttpd by showing how to install Lighttpd. He also shows how you can use the power of regular expressions to tweak how your web server handles requests, and even how to secure your web server.
You will learn in depth how to secure Lighttpd and be prepared for an attack, and how to react when you are attacked.
You will also learn how to host multiple sites on a single server with Virtual Hosting.
Andre even covers how to migrate from Apache to Lighttpd, in depth.
This is really a great book, and if you are new to the world of web servers, or administration of a website it is a must!
