Thinking about switching off of Open BSD's httpd daemon on my FreeBSD servers, maybe for lighttpd?
I like obhttpd but projects I use seem to support lighttpd better; and for some reason the binary pkg of obhttpd breaks due to SSL ABI for me after every upgrade (Having ports build it from source fixes it, but that shouldn't be needed.)
The correct answer to that is that I probably ought to be running; OpenBSD on those boxes but that is another journey for another time.
