CoreHTTP Web Server

Download  |  Manual page  |  Sample configfile


Corehttp is known to have security vulnerabilities to attacks such as buffer overflows. It is no longer under active development. Please do not use it for anything but personal academic study. It is not safe to deploy online. As a project hosted by SourceForge, it will remain online and perhaps the code may be useful for learning purposes.


This project is designed to be a minimalist http server focusing on speed and size. The following is a list of some features of this web server:


% tar zxvf corehttp*tar.gz
% cd corehttp/src 
% sudo make install
% cd ..
% man corehttp
% vi chttp.conf
% corehttp chttp.conf
% firefox localhost
