NAME

       lighttpd - a fast, secure and flexible web server

SYNOPSIS

       lighttpd [-ptDvVh] -f configfile [-m moduledir]

DESCRIPTION

       lighttpd  (pronounced 'lighty') is an advanced HTTP daemon that aims to
       be secure, fast, compliant and very flexible.  It  has  been  optimized
       for high performance.  Its feature set includes, but is not limited to,
       FastCGI, CGI, basic and digest HTTP authentication, output compression,
       URL rewriting.

       This manual page only lists the command line arguments.  For details on
       how to configure lighttpd and its modules see the  files  in  the  doc-
       directory.

       The following options are supported:

       -f  configfile
               Load configuration file configfile.

       -m  moduledir

               exit.

       -t      Test the configuration file for syntax errors and exit.

       -D      Do  not  daemonize  (go  into  background).  The  default is to
               daemonize.
