pyLoad offers several server backends, now following a short explanation.
builtin: Default server, best choice if you dont know which one to choose.
threaded: This server offers SSL and is a good alternative to builtin.
fastcgi: Can be used by apache, lighttpd, requires you to configure them, which is not too easy job.
lightweight: Very fast alternative written in C, requires libev and linux knowlegde.
Get it from here:, compile it
and copy to module/lib

Attention: In some rare cases the builtin server is not working, if you notice problems with the webinterface
come back here and change the builtin server to the threaded one here.
Server ([builtin], threaded, fastcgi, lightweight): ENTER
