NCSA HTTPd archived

Want to run one of the world’s first web servers? TooDumbForAName is preserving them on GitHub.

This is a copy of the NCSA HTTPd source code. NCSA HTTPd was the first web server to see widespread use. I'm attempting to preserve each relase in-tree by tag, but some releases have apparently already been lost to the world; 0.5 is the earliest I've found so far

As a digital hoarder archivist, I locally cloned this repo faster than Mosaic would have rendered it on hardware at the time.
