Web server (thttpd)

ID #1082

Should I use the FREESCO web server as a public web server?

Better not. The stock FREESCO web server is based on thttpd 2.05, which is a rather ancient version (check the release notes) and contains bugs that could possibly be exploited by maliscious users.

If you have sufficient RAM then consider installing the Apache package that is available for both FREESCO 0.2.7 and 0.3.x series.

If you think Apache is too complex or stressing the available resources of your FREESCO box, then install the thttpd+ package by Icy K. These packages are unfortunally not available on FREESCOSoft but the package is available on my server as well.

pkg -i http://dingetje.homeip.net/packages/0.3.x/thttpd+_php-4.2.3_the.icy.k
