This comes up every year, as we have a customer site which gets very
heavy load for a couple of weeks a year. The site uses PHP but also a
lot of images and some flash and it is definitely rather wasteful to
have a big apache process simply handing out an image.
So, once again I'm looking at possibly also running a small lightweight
webserver which would be used to serve any static files. X15 was one
option in the past but Chromium (its parent) is defunct. khttpd is now
gone from the kernel, and the tux web server also seems to be defunct.
Or perhaps I should just migrate the thing to apache 2 which gives more
bang for my CPU buck anyway? Is PHP support in Apache 2 now as solid as
it is in apache? (for values of solid which apply to php anyway)
