IPv4 has been in place for around 30 years now and is still a testament to human ingenuity. Unfortunately, IPv4 is limited to approximately 4.3 billion addresses, 0.0.0.0 - 255.255.255.255.

Ran into this issue after getting rid of the www-data user and group. The solution is simple and doesn't involve adding the account/group, assuming the objective is to run Lighttpd as a different user (not www-data). If the intention is to run Lighttpd with the www-data account, simply add the account. Otherwise, keep reading...

Although extremely useful, http server access logs are a mess in their raw form. If you're interested in watching your http server logs in real time with formatting rules and pretty colors, this post is for you.
A couple months ago I gave up all those fancy buttons, panels, widgets, icons, and other miscellaneous crap that make using a computer annoying, for a more simplistic approach. The dynamic window manager from suckless provides anything the casual web surfer or hardware design engineer could ever want and nothing more; exactly what a window manager should do.
