 Lightweight Web Serving with thttpd

Good article that explains why you might want to use a web server other than Apache.

"Here is where lightweight HTTP servers come into play, as their low-memory footprints deliver decent results without having to swap data back to disk. Similarly, these small HTTP servers are suitable to serve static content efficiently so as to allow Apache, mod_perl, mod_python, or even servlet containers to handle dynamic requests without tying up memory-hungry children to serve small images. In other words, these applications can serve as a complement to your existing full-featured web server, not as a replacement."
