An extremely simple, OpenTransport-based freeware web server program. Version 0.5 makes the resource containing MIME types more accessible to ResEdit junkies.

User Reviews

"Um . . . it's easy. Actually, there's very little to it; just tell it your WWW folder and it will only access that folder. It won't follow aliases out of that folder--it will stay there. It's pretty quick and runs in the background nicely. Granted, I didn't use it to run a site the size of Apple's on it, but it worked nicely serving my personal pages off a 28.8 connection on a 7200/90. It's a lot easier to set up than NetPresenz, but it lacks [some things], especially CGI capability. But that's fine; it works nicely for personal servers."
—Darren Montjar

"It is very easy to use, but painfully slow starting up on a IIcx. I've only used it once, but it served my purpose for the afternoon. The other serves I have tried, including Web Server 4D, seem to run faster."
—David Roberts

"I needed a leightweight, fast, easy web server for sharing files over an heterogenous network. I downloaded EasyServe and less than ONE minute after, the web server was running. It is simple, does just one thing, and that is why it is so useful."
—Androse Rosewood

Also, if you have an older Mac, be sure to check out the "Classic" applications page for more options.

Finally, take a look at ALEMIA if you think you know that name of an application, but aren't quite sure.

Of Note . . .

No, I don't accept reviews anymore for these older applications. With the creation of this page in the Orchard's late 2005 redesign, I only accept reviews for currently-developed applications that work on Mac OS X (or later....whatever that might be!!).
