Oh, please. If you want to setup such schemes, why would you not want to
spend 5 minutes to configure apache or lighttpd instead of spending at
least the same time to configure such an obscure piece of software?

If all you care about is sharing a few files in the simplest way, there
are much better tools to do it, like gnome-user-share.
