I installed lighttpd from ports on my FreeBSD-5 system last night,
to play with that instead of WEBrick for development work.
I installed it, and ran script/server, and got this:
[minter@carlton discostu]$ script/server
=> Booting lighttpd (use ‘script/server webrick’ to force WEBrick)
=> Rails application started on http://0.0.0.0:3000
=> Call with -d to detach (requires absolute paths in
=> Ctrl-C to shutdown server (see config/lighttpd.conf for options)
2006-02-01 12:36:55: (server.c.432) Are you nuts ? Don’t apply a SUID
to this binary
And that’s where it ends, complaining about an SUID bit on “this
I’ve checked the lighttpd binary, and it’s non-SUID:
[minter@carlton discostu]$ ls -lsa /usr/local/sbin/lighttpd
134 -r-xr-xr-x 1 root wheel 136676 Jan 31 23:06
And I can’t find anything else in the mix that might be going SUID.
Anyone using lighttpd on FreeBSD that can shed some light on this?
