I’ve been looking at Lighttpd for some time now and finally found some time to get it setup and to document the process. I’m not going to replace Apache on my production systems just yet but I thought it would be nice to have a choice. You can find the Lighttpd install instructions here and I also added a page on how to compile PHP5 for Lighttpd as it needs to be compiled differently.

Virtual servers and a SSL/HTTPS setup are planned to follow soon…

If you would like other software included in the documentation project let me know, try to convince me to include it. Donations usually help ;-)
