Locomotive/lighttpd config questions


I’ve got a couple of configuration questions about
using lighttpd under Locomotive:

  • (how) can I cause lighttpd to run each Rails page
    request as a separate process? It seems like this
    should be possible, using dispatch.cgi, but I don’t
    know how to get that to run.

  • Assuming that I have a looong-running Rails app,
    (how) can I raise the lighttpd timeout to some
    ridiculous value? I’m getting erratic, timing-
    dependent “500 - Internal Server Error” messages
    and I’d like them to go away.
