light­weight http server

Fri, Aug 10, 2007

The other day i neede a light­weight http server to run on win­dows. Its a client machine in a clients work­place and i only have local admin access. How­ever i didn’t want to add the IIS server as it would have been a bit notice­able as would Apache. I liked the option of lighthttpd but it doen’t run on win­dows and i don’t want to load cyg­win and port of lighthttpd is flaky. Anyway i came across shttpd  which does a good job.
