Motsognir is a robust, reliable and easy to install open-source gopher server for Unix-like systems (Linux, BSD, and anything else POSIX-compliant).

The Motsognir gopher server is meant to be used for small projects (like home servers), but should scale well on bigger architectures as well. All the configuration is done via a single configuration file, which has very reasonable defaults. That makes Motsognir easily maintainable, and allows the administrator to have a full knowledge of what features are allowed/enabled on the server, and what's not. Motsognir supports server-side CGI applications and PHP scripts, is plainly compatible with UTF-8 filesystems, and is entirely written in ANSI C without external dependencies.
