\fBlighttpd\fP (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.
The angel is used to keep the worker running and for other tasks where root
permissions are needed (opening network sockets, ...)
This manual page only lists the command line arguments. For details
