MyAddressBook User Guide - Setting up with lighttpd

If you want to use lighttpd instead of Apache, follow the Install guide, but in the "Install the prerequisites" section do this:

 sudo apt-get install slapd ldap-utils lighttpd python-ldap python-webpy

(I.e. install lighttpd instead of apache2.)

And instead of the "Configuring Apache" section, do this:

Configuring lighttpd

(Note these instructions are for Ubuntu and may need to be modified for other Linux distributions. Contributions of instructions for other systems will be welcomed!)

Edit the lighttpd fastcgi configuration file:

 sudo gedit /etc/lighttpd/conf-available/10-fastcgi.conf

so that it contains this:

Ensure the fastcgi config is enabled like this:

 sudo ln -s /etc/lighttpd/conf-available/10-fastcgi.conf /etc/lighttpd/conf-enabled/10-fastcgi.conf 

(Don't worry if you get an error saying it already exists.)

Then restart lighttpd like this:

 sudo service lighttpd restart

MyAddressBook should now be visible at http://localhost/myaddressbook.
