I always loved apache since the beginning of times.... still do, but let's say that lighttpd is my b1tch now.
Why i moved?
- Really easy to install and config
- Not many dependencies
- Ease PHP/CGI setup
- REALLY easy to setup a multi virtual Host (great for your work environment)
- Runs smooth on my 64mb ram server... Yes, I'm not lying.!
Give it a try, your home server will love it too: http://www.lighttpd.net/.
