If you're looking for a small, simple, fast webserver, consider thttpd.
If you are looking for a small, simple, fast webserver, forget about trying to
use server-side includes, Perl/mod_perl, PHP, or any other scripted language,
especially if they are talking to a database. A large PHP BBS requires a lot
of resources because it is not especially efficient way of solving the problem.
[ Compare the number of HTTP transactions-- and the sizes involved-- of looking
through the Mailman archives of this list versus reading your favorite PHP
board. Animated GIFs for smileys, user avatar images and .sigs, or worse,
.sigs in Flash, etc, etc... ]
