as the folder 'test' suggests this is a test server which is used to run
the libcurl test suite; it cant be used as a standalone server since its
very specialized; its somehow a robot which expects special requests and
then acts on them with special replies.

there's none and will never be I guess ...

if you really want to do that then you're on your own;
but be advised that there are a couple of simple and small general
purpose servers out there - a while back such a question came up here on
the list and some replied with some small servers; perhaps we should
make a one-time off-topic post here just for later referrence where we
collect such simple server projects ...
