Smarty Sample Application: Guestbook

Ooh nice. Monte Ohrt wrote a guestbook as a demonstration of how to use Smarty to seperate presentation and code.
It’s well laid out and described in detail. If you’ve wondered what this Smarty thing is take a look at this and read through it a few times.
Later… PHP Guru has a guide to setting up an application’s structure which is worth a look!

lighttpd – lighttpd a secure, fast, compliant and very flexible web-server which has been optimized for high-performance environments. It has a very low memory footprint compared to other webservers and takes care of cpu-load. Its advanced feature-set (FastCGI, CGI, Auth, Output-Compression, URL-Rewriting and many more) make lighttpd the perfect webserver-software for every server that is suffering load problems.
