Switching from Apache to Lighttpd

Over the past few weeks I have been struggling with the latest updates to Apache which seems to have broken everything suexec related in such a way that no human is ever meant to figure it out.

The error message from Apache, should anyone be interested, is "AH1215: (60) Device is not a stream".

The interesting thing here is that the choice of web servers basically comes down to this: Do you want a huge monster where everything is supposed to "just work" but never does, OR do you want an extremely agile and configurable one where you pretty much have to hack together every feature on your own?

Lighttpd is, as you can probably guess, the latter. Which means I have to spend a few 'tuits' here and there to fix one vhost at a time. If you spot anything that isn't working right, I'd really appreciate it if you took the time to let me know.

Thanks :-)

On the light side :-)

You may already know that "deleting" a file does nothing of the sort. But did you know that your virtual disks have a built-in system for the secure erasure of data?

Making ends meet
