how to make smallest chroot for webserver

I didn't know which forum would be best for this question. Ultimately it boils down to networking.

I would like to make a very small chroot to run a very basic Python web server (basic cgi python scripts).
What do I need in there?
How do I direct traffic to it?

(I thought this:
using lighttpd would be a good start but no success.)

(I also saw that many more libs were being copied than necessary.)

You don't need to direct traffic to it as such - it's still listening on port 80/443 as per a normal webserver.


chroot, webserver
