In my set-up, I run (as root)
ln -s ~/share /var/www. By doing this, anyone on the local network will access the ~/share directory by pointing their browsers at http://hostname/share. I use
apache, but I suspect that it's overkill (memory usage) for this simple use.
What alternative light-weight web servers can I use for this? Will it also be tinker-free (in Debian, there's no extra set-up for
apache, beyond installation)?
