  Apache can do plenty for you, but if you're after something a little lighter
have a look at

One of the smallest is micro_httpd[1].


[1] $ aptitude show micro-httpd
Description: really small HTTP server
micro_httpd is a very small Unix-based HTTP server. It runs from inetd, which means its performance is poor. But for low-traffic sites, it's quite adequate.
It implements all the basic features of an HTTP server, including:
* Security against ".." filename snooping
* The common MIME types
* Trailing-slash redirection
* index.html
* Directory listings
All in 150 lines of code. micro_httpd can also be used to serve HTTPS by wrapping it with stunnel.
