Repost: brainspl.at tutorial and lighttpd .10 crashes


#1

I just got a new Debian Sarge server and followed the brainspl.at
“Debian Lighttpd Rails Stack” tutorial.

The only place I deviated was the version of Lighty. The page uses
1.4.7 and I spotted that 1.4.10 was available. I installed that and
couldn’t get anywhere. Lighty died on first access from the test
rails app, and even from a ultra basic static config. No log, no
info, just dead.

I downloaded 1.4.7, installed it and everything is fine. Great
tutorial, works as advertised, but I’m not sure why there are
problems with the later version of lighty… any ideas ?

I’ll stick with 1.4.7 for the moment, since it works. If this
segfault is a known bug, when was it introduced ? Can I get a more
recent version (.8 or .9)? Obviously I’d like to be running as up-to-
date a version as possible.
