The next piece of software that we will be installing is the actual web server software, called Lighttpd. This is a server package that has been optimized for embedded applications. It has all the functionality that we will need and consumes relatively few computing resources. For a better reference, refer to http://www.lighttpd.net/
"With a small memory footprint compared to other web-servers, effective management of the cpu-load, and advanced feature set (FastCGI, SCGI, Auth, Output-Compression, URL-Rewriting and many more) lighttpd is the perfect solution for every server that is suffering load problems. And best of all it's Open Source licensed under the revised BSD license."
To bring about the installation, we enter the following command in the terminal window:
apt-get install lighttpd
