Lighttpd refuses to bind to externally routable IP address


All is fine when I run in development mode with rails + lighttpd. I’m
using the lighttpd.conf file that is auto-generated by Rails. Works just
fine in developemtn mode.

When I swith to production mode and use my externally routed domain name
lighttpd refuses to bind to the address. I know the address works since
I run a mail server behind it. I can ssh to it, etc.

I have been pulling my hair out on this for hours.

What is going on!

I really need to get this project up and running. Any help, much
