NetworkActiv Web Server - Small Screenshot


NetworkActiv Web Server (NAWS) was designed from scratch with the intent of being the very easiest Web server software available and is not based on any previously existing web servers or programs, while still providing the necessary advanced features. With an intuitive and to-the-point graphical user interface, NAWS can be set up in a matter of minutes, even by the inexperienced user. NAWS includes support for the industry standard features, such as CGI, PHP, and Perl, as well as support for serving byte ranges, which allows for real-time positioning of audio files that are being streamed. See below for a list of additional features provided by NAWS.
