iamnoxtras Posted August 16, 2013 Share Posted August 16, 2013 (edited) Recently came across a bash only web server (using netcat) at http://paulbuchheit.blogspot.ro/2007/04/webserver-in-bash.html I fiddled a little with it and turned it into a decent web server, with server logs and all. (no IP captured, just the query string and timestamp) It supports file downloads, it servers static html, PHP, Python and binary files with arguments (GET). It checks for 404 errors and it keeps a server log. Fun facts: 5 times slower then nginx (for a single user) executes binary faster then displays static content php is the slowest :) php files need to be .php python files .py binaries .cb (C binary:) ) It's great if you just need a server for a short period of time and don't need security... It only works on Linux. (I've tested it under ubuntu) I had great fun working on it. I hope you'll have as much fun with it as had. If you find an use for it, drop me a line. server.zip Edited August 16, 2013 by iamnoxtras Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
