Benefits of moving to lighty over mini_httpd?



  • I saw that lighty has been moved back into the tree, which is great news.  As I understand it, using lighty will make captive portal really snappy but what are the other benefits we can expect to enjoy from the transition?

    Have you followed the mini_httpd bugs threads?  That alone makes it worth it.

    Other than that:

    • fast-cgi

    • additional caching

    • bsd license

    • output-compression

    • doesnt need to fork for every incoming connection
