I am newbie - needed help,

I just know updated rails1.1

When i start the server I'm getting this error,

gbalaji:~/projects/depot gopalbalaji$ ruby script/server
=> Booting lighttpd (use 'script/server webrick' to force WEBrick)
=> Rails application started on
=> Call with -d to detach
=> Ctrl-C to shutdown server (see config/lighttpd.conf for options)
Undefined config variable: var.CWD
2006-03-28 19:36:15: (configfile.c.800) source: config/lighttpd.conf
line: 8 pos: 43 parser failed somehow near here: +

You need a recent build of lighttpd for the script/server to
work...1.4.9 or higher i believe...

Note: this is only because of the way that the DEVELOPMENT lighttpd.conf
is written...

Rails can run on lightys ealier than 1.4.9
