Xzero HTTP Application Web Server

x0d is a thin low-latency and scalable HTTP web server built on-top of the Xzero C++ HTTP Framework.

It supports a very expressive and natural configuration via the Flow configuration language and a number of standard plugins to become your web application server.

  • Customizable Error Pages
  • Automatic Directory Indexing
  • on-the-fly executable upgrade with gracefully finishing currently active requests.
  • Easily Extensible via the Powerful Plugin System
  • SSL connection encryption
    • SSL Server Name Indication (SNI) extension
  • Dynamic Content Compression
  • Advanced Dynamic Load Balancer
    • Supporting different backend transports (TCP/IP, and UNIX Domain Sockets).
    • Supporting different backend protocols (HTTP and FastCGI)
    • Advanced Health Monitoring
    • JSON API for retrieving state, stats, and reconfiguring clusters (including adding/updating/removing backends).
    • Client Side Routing support
    • Sticky Offline Mode
    • X-Sendfile support, full static file transmission acceleration
    • HAproxy compatible CSV output
    • Object Cache
      • fully runtime configurable
      • client-cache aware
      • life JSON stats
      • supports serving stale objects when no backend is available
      • Vary response-header Support.
      • multiple update strategies (locked, shadowed)
  • Basic Authentication
    • including PAM authentication
  • Request Path Aliasing
  • Automatic Directory Listing
  • Apache-style access logging
  • User-directory Support
  • Browser Match Support
  • Customizable Expires & Cache-Control Response Header Control
  • instant mode (configuration-less basic HTTP serving)
  • CGI/1.1 Support

Installation Requirements

  • latest stable CLANG (4.0) or a comparible GCC
  • automake / autoconf (for building only)
  • zlib (optional & recommended, for compression)
  • OpenSSL (optional & recommended, for SSL/TLS encryption)

Building from Source on Ubuntu 17.04:

# Installs required dependencies
sudo apt-get install make autoconf automake libtool gcc-4.8 g++-4.8 \
    libmysqlclient-dev zlib1g-dev libbz2-dev pkg-config libssl-dev \
    libfcgi-dev libgoogle-perftools-dev libpam-dev git

# Install git and clone repository
git clone git://github.com/christianparpart/x0.git && cd x0

# Now bootstrap the build (in a sandbox directory)
mkdir -p build && cd build && ../autogen.sh
../configure # <-- your custom configure-flags here

# Now compiling should just work.
make && sudo make install

# Run web server on port 8080
./x0d --instant=`pwd`/www/htdocs,8080

# or try its CLI help
./x0d -h

# have fun hacking and don't forget to checkout the just installed man pages ;-)
