./www/thttpd, Tiny/turbo/throttling HTTP server

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.29, Package name: thttpd-2.29, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

thttpd is a simple, small, portable, fast, and secure HTTP server.

Simple: It handles only the minimum necessary to implement HTTP/1.1.

Small: See the size comparison chart at
http://www.acme.com/software/thttpd/notes.html#sizes. It also has a
very small run-time size, since it does not fork and is very careful about
memory allocation.

Portable: It compiles cleanly on SunOS 4.1.x, Solaris 2.x, BSD/OS 2.x,
Linux 1.2.x, and OSF/1 (on a 64-bit Alpha).

Fast: In typical use it's about as fast as the best full-featured servers
(Apache, NCSA, Netscape). Under extreme load it's much faster.

Secure: It goes to great lengths to protect the web server machine
against attacks and breakins from other sites.

thttpd also provides URL-traffic-based throttling and virtual hosting.

Log message:
*: Move SUBST_STAGE from post-patch to pre-configure

Performing substitutions during post-patch breaks tools such as mkpatches,
making it very difficult to regenerate correct patches after making changes,
and often leading to substituted string replacements being committed.

Log message:
thttpd: update to 2.28.

From nia in PR 53266.

New in version 2.28:

    Improvements to the FreeBSD startup script. (Craig Leres)
    Minor portability tweak in mmc.c.
    Fix to buffer overrun bug in htpasswd. Reported by Alessio Santoru as \ 
CVE-2017-17663.

New in version 2.27:

    Stats syslogs changed from LOG_INFO to LOG_NOTICE.
    Use memmove() for self-overlapping string copies instead of strcpy().

Log message:
Replaced $(ROUND) with ${CURLY} variable references.

This has been a pkglint warning for several years now, and pkglint can even
fix it automatically. And it did for this commit.

Only in lang/mercury, two passes of autofixing were necessary because there
were nested variables.
