Have You Noticed Better Performance?

Files under Computers, Science & Technology | Posted by DrBill

That is, of my Blog? I have moved “Dr. Bill – The Computer Curmudgeon” to another server in my server farm here at Dr. Bill Bailey.NET. The difference? Load balancing… and it is now running over the LightTPD web server running on one of my CentOS Linux servers. For more info on what LightTPD offers, check out the link:

LightTPD web server

“Security, speed, compliance, and flexibility–all of these describe LightTPD which is rapidly redefining efficiency of a webserver; as it is designed and optimized for high performance environments. With a small memory footprint compared to other web-servers, effective management of the cpu-load, and advanced feature set (FastCGI, CGI, 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.

light footprint + httpd = LightTPD (pronounced lighty)”

I also use LightTPD for my Dr. Bill.TV web site, because it natively supports Flash streaming!
