    Can we install thttpd together with apache?

    Hello , i hear alot of good thing about thttpd , but can we install thttpd in another port when apache still running in port 80 ?

    I dont see why not.

    Check out the -p option via command line, or a simple change in the source could make it listen on a different port.

    Yes. No problem - apache use 80 port while thttpd over port.

    a cool thing would be to make the kernel decide which one should give the content

    if static -> thttpd
    else -> apache

    hehe... i guess there're already some modules/hacks for kernel... but i don't do that on running kernels

    i think it's needed to be in different ports

    AFAIK, there would be a kernel module checking for HTTPd requests on port 80
    if it requests a static object (html, gif, jpg...), it's sent to thttpd, else it's sent to apache
