Build your own web server software.

You can download the source code from IBM. Link is below.

$ mkdir nweb
$ cd nweb

Download and extract the tar file
$ tar zxvf es-nweb.tar

Compile
$ gcc nweb.c -o nweb
(Compiles quickly)

nweb port [directory} and run in background:
(I just used the current directory for testing)
$ nweb 8181 . &

Point to it from a browser. Actually I used the web directory on my existing web server to see what I would get.).





IBM suggests.

 
$ mkdir /home/nag/webpages

$ cd /home/nag/webpages

$ cp /tmp/nweb.tar .

$ tar xvf nweb.tar

$ ls

client.c

index.html

nigel.jpg

nweb.c

nweb_AIX51

nweb_RedHat9_pentium

nweb_SuSE_SLES8_PowerPC

$ chmod ugo+x nweb

$ chmod ugo+r *.html *.jpg

$ nweb 8181 /home/nag/webpages &
