As previously mentioned I've switched my webserving over to a mixture of apache2 & thttpd.
I chose thttpd as it is simple to configure for my needs, and supports the execution of CGI scripts. Some of the other simple webservers available to Debian's current stable release (such as nginx) don't support CGI so they were ruled out.
Of course prior to choosing thttpd I looked at the state of the Debian package. Distressingly the package has no current maintainer and has several bugs open, including some that have been open for several years without comment.
I've just made my second upload fixing a couple of bugs, including ones that I could see affecting myself, but now I'm done with it.
- I've fixed a few bugs.
- I suspect that many of the open bugs are 100% unreproducable and should be closed after checking with the submitter.
- The package could do with a volunteer to maintain it.
On the one hand it is "just another webserver", on the other hand it is genuinely small, simple to configure, and has a couple of compelling features (CGI + throttling).
So. Go. Adopt. Maintain.
