Config file for Lighttpd for win 2003 server


E

Erik Andersen

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
