Config file for Lighttpd for win 2003 server

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Erik Andersen, Jan 23, 2006.

  1. Hi All

    I am having difficulties setting up the lighttpd.conf file for running Ruby
    on Rails on my windows 2003 server. I have actually managed to get it up
    and running by trial and error, but it is very slow.

    Not fully understanding the lighttpd.conf file I suspect that maybe it is
    not running fastcgi, but only cgi since I have heard that this would be slow.
    Maybe it it is not necessary to include the mod_cgi at all ?

    My lighttpd.con file i pasted below. Any ideas are most welcome.

    lighttpd.conf
    ----
    # lighttpd configuration file
    #
    # use a it as base for lighttpd 1.0.0 and above
    #
