Default which is lightweight web server?

I am mostly using apache webserver.

I hear about Ngnix is a popular lightweight server for those who do not need the bulk and extra services that Apache may offer.

Please let me know your suggestion

Ngnix is a good option as it will consume less memory resource of your server.

I'd suggest either Nginx or Lightspeed web server, both are good from what I've heard about them.

Never tried Nginx, but lightspeed is definitely light. Used it on my iPod for a while as a web server for experimental purposes, and it performed well.
