Stud is now officially abandonware and the alternative is Hitch from Varnish Software. Compared to Stud, Hitch supports TLS 1.2 and has can live reload configuration and certificates at runtime.

The following steps have been tested on a DigitalOcean CentOS VPS instance.

Hitch requires the following dependencies:

sudo apt-get install python-docutils libev-devel  

Download, unpack, configure and install Hitch:

tar -xvf hitch-1.1.1.tar.gz  
cd hitch-1.1.1  
./configure --prefix=/opt/hitch 
make install
