lighttpd makes a proxy comeback

Posted by David

As Mongrel continues to bubble to the top of the preferred production stack, we’ve started to evaluate web servers on their proxy rather than their FCGI support. The lighttpd crew has heard this change of priorities loud and clear and the coming version will feature a brand new mod_proxy_core module, which aims to rectify all the troubles of the old mod_proxy.

Jan Kneschke and crew are busy preparing this proxy module for release with lighttpd 1.5.0, but you can already now get your toes wet with the pre-release.

All hail the http pipe!
