Suggetions for optimizing sever for static content?

Could anyone be kind enough to point me or give me some pointers on how I can optimise my sever for static files delivery?
Thanks

Are you using the Apache web server?

There's several things that can be done but it all depends on what you are doing. Please provide more detailed information about your site, hardware, software, etc.

Try Ngnix or Lighttpd, they can be good alternative to apache and will improve the speed too.

As mentioned above lighttpd is a good option. I am partial towards litespeed because you dont have to recreate your apache config if your converting from apache, but thats a paid software. works well though.

would be hard to say as it totally depends on your requirements, lot of files? large files? lot of concurrent downloads? requirements for any special modules or functions?

For performance, I always recommend LiteSpeed Web Servers. Check them out

I would just use apache with a different mpm. All these new "fast" servers are just event based or threading servers using apache with mpm event should be almost as fast.

He is right about performance, but the resource usage (ram) is more then using a light httpd.

Although this only shows ruby and not static content and mpm worker and not mpm event. I'll create some benchmarks to prove this sometime. Memory usage would only be higher depending on how many modules you load.
