I have been trying to get Lighttpd working.... we have been using webrick, but want to move to a production quality web server. I followed the instructions found here : http://brainspl.at/pages/rails_stack We are developing on windows and deploying to Fedora Linux. We're using rails 1.0. The build actually happens on the windows box and using ant transfers the code to the Linux box. If I manually copy the code from the Windows box to the deployment box, Lighttpd works fine. However if I use the ant task deploy it (which just SCPs the code), it fails. Here is the error I get when I run ruby script/server: => Booting lighttpd (use 'script/server webrick' to force WEBrick) Rails Error: Unable to access log file. Please ensure that script/../config/../log/development.log exists and is chmod 0666. The log level has been raised to WARN and the output directed to STDERR until the problem is fixed. => Rails application started on http://0.0.0.0:3000 => Call with -d to detach (requires absolute paths in config/lighttpd.conf) => Ctrl-C to shutdown server (see config/lighttpd.conf for options) 2005-12-22 17:02:34: (mod_accesslog.c.512) opening access-log failed: Permission denied log/lighttpd.access.log 2005-12-22 17:02:34: (server.c.670) Configuration of plugins failed. Going down. Any ideas?

Can you go ahead and use your ant task to move things to linux and then chmod the log files to be read/writable by the user that you run lighttpd as? Try that and report back with your findings and I'll help you debug. -Ezra
