Lighttpd is known for how lightweight it is and its ability to handle thousands of requests per second, and Lighttpd powers sites like The Pirate Bay, YouTube, Imageshack, Webkinz, and a host of others. So I thought I would give lighttpd a spin.
To get PHP stuff to work, I had to recompile PHP due to the fact that some company, *cough* Apple *cough* didn’t include a fastcgi or cgi binary of php.
Anyways, after that bump, everything was quite easy. I also made MXR work after a bit of cgi.assign magic.
To view pages as served by lighttpd (Blog or Wiki or subdomains aren’t supported) just change the port to 81 by adding :81 after the domain.
