A Simple Webserver Written in C

This is a simple webserver written in the C programming language.

It uses a pool of 10 connections to serve multiple requests concurrently and it keeps track of how much data it has output, printing it to the standard output stream.

Compiling and Using the System

On a Linux system system simply use the makefile to compile the server.

On a Mac use this command to compile the server:

gcc cs241server.c –o cs241server

To run the server type ./server into a terminal that is in the directory where the executable file is located.

By default the server runs on port 2001, so to try it out navigate to

localhost:2001 in a webbrowser
