PLEASE NOTE: Native Lighttpd Windows builds are available at http://en.wlmp-project.net/
The last available Lighttpd for Windows build that I created using Cygwin was Lighttpd for Windows 1.4.17. Updated September 29, 2009.
If you a need for a small, fast lightweight web server and you’re running Windows, I have just the solution for you: Lighttpd For Windows. I created a setup package for it that does not need Cygwin on the host machine. Enjoy!
