I was trying to figure out how the webserver in LuCI works, and realized that there are two (or maybe three) web servers mentioned in the OpenWrt documentation. They are:
- (maybe) Busybox
I believe that uhttpd is the default web server for the LuCI GUI in 19.07.
But I see that lightttpd (and a zillion of its packages) are also installed by default in 19.07. Update: That last sentence is wrong, wrong, wrong. lighttpd is not installed...
How can I tell which is running? What's their relationship? Is lighttpd ever required? Thanks.
