A simple web server.
It would be useful if you need to debug or publish a simple HTML site
and you don’t want to set up IIS or install Apache.
Certainly, a simple site can be debugged with a single browser.
But in some cases (for example using links of ‘/subdir/page.html’ kind),
it is better to use a web server. The order of operating with a web server is:
After having launched the software, you have to indicate
a directory name on the local machine that will be the root
directory for your site and click the “Start” button.
Your site’s capacity can be checked by entering
‘//127.0.0.1/index.html’ into the address bar of your browser.
To launch a site from another directory, click “Stop” button
and enter another directory’s name and click “Start” again.
To save queries to the server to a ‘webserv.log’ file,
tick “Save query history”.
The program minimizes to a window unseen in the task bar.
It is made for web server work not to disturb you.
To stop a minimized web server, launch the program once again.
A window of already launched server will appear,
where “Stop” or dagger button should be clicked.
For the first launch of the program with the parameter -h (for example,
from the icon in Autorun menu), the program window is not shown and
the web server automatically starts with the last working root directory.
It is a very simple web server and when a HTTP query is received
it simply gives files from the chosen directory without indicating any MIME-types.
Though, during the creation of this site, the program assisted very well.
