lighttpd is a lightweight web server used mainly to serve static files. Youtube used lighttpd before it was purchased by Google. I was using lighttpd with some file hosting/image hosting sites with mod_secdownload that allows the link to expire after predefined time. These days i use Nginx as it is more popular. Only see lighttpd rarely.
