Projects / MiniWebsvr


MiniWebsvr is a small Web server that aims to one day be embeddable. It supports static Web pages, directory listing, HTTP MIME encodings, GET/HEAD/OPTIONS, and logging to disk. It has a small memory footprint, is multi-threaded, and supports command line options, conditional GET:, If-Modified-Since:, and range-bound downloads (download resuming).

      Release Notes: An off-by-one buffer overflow/underflow issue was fixed. This can cause the server to never respond to a request (since Forces wait on I/O). In some cases, it causes a segfault.

        Release Notes: Command line error checking was improved. Support for files larger than 2GB was added. A FreeBSD client was added. An issue where MiniWebSvr would list and load a default page on a directory without the trailing slash was fixed to redirect the client to the correct page.

          Release Notes: Extra command-line options were added to set the default page name, to disable directory listing, to disable reporting of server name and version, and to disable logging. A sub-root vulnerability introduced in 0.0.7 was fixed. A problem in which the default page was not always working was fixed. Several other fixes were made.
