lighttpd is a light weight 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 link to expire after pre defined time. These days i use Nginx as it is more popular. Only see lighttpd rarely.
