mohawk - small HTTP server
mohawk is a small HTTP server initially based on mini_httpd. It'is heavily based on libevent2.
It is not design for performance even if it performs with quite good at this point. It is design to be lightweight and low footprint.
It implements the following features :
- GET, HEAD, and POST methods.
- Basic authentication.
- Simple mime type support
- Trailing-slash redirection.
- index.html, index.htm, index.cgi
- Directory listings.
- Multihoming / virtual hosting.
- URL mapping
- status page
It also comes with a shell implementation of htpasswd which implements all the supported password formats supported by the apache version of htpasswd.
Beware that mohawk only support the basic (crypt) authentication currently.
Version 2.0.4: restrict_froms is obsolete. Use 'grant_acces' for acces / deny addresses or networks.
