Out of curiousity--have you benchmarked lighttpd vs. AOLserver (since you already have both set up)? AOL replaced their "ArtBlaster" (very thin, lightweight, single-threaded HTTP server for static assets) a while back and replaced it with AOLserver 4.0, since it was "fast enough" ... if lighttpd's benchmarks are significantly better, I'd like to try and understand why/how and start tuning AOLserver to match. I'd just like to know if folks are running lighttpd because it truly is faster, or simply because it isn't AOLserver ... -- Dossy -- Dossy Shiobara | [EMAIL PROTECTED] | http://dossy.org/ Panoptic Computer Network | http://panoptic.com/ "He realized the fastest way to change is to laugh at your own folly -- then you can let go and quickly move on."
