I have fedora v4 and apache installed but im only using this dedicated server
for hosting images from my websites, they receive a big amount of traffic per day
around 100,000 visits a day and I would like to use something faster than apache
something like lighthttpd or even better! does someone know what can I use?

Hi,

I think you mean lighttpd.  lighttpd is probably the best out there.  I have tried Abyss too, http://www.aprelium.com/abyssws/download.php.  They are basically very small footprint and very fast Web servers.

TinyWeb from Ritlabs? Not sure it works on Linux though.

I used thttpd. It has better performance against apache (for static content).
Here are some comparison graphs: http://www.zeuscat.com/andrew/work/aprbench/

thttpd is available from here http://www.acme.com/software/thttpd/
Under extreme load it's much faster then apache.
