Boa httpd

Boa is a single-tasking HTTP server. That means that, unlike traditional web servers, it does not fork for each incoming connection, nor does it fork many copies of itself to handle multiple connections.

Boa is very low on hardware usage and is therefore used on many embedded systems, including routers and portable devices.

Boa does handle CGI, but not PHP or ASP.
