Configure lighttp to simulate .htaccess rules (Deny From All)

Posted by coldtobi | 19 Jun, 2010, 13:14

Unfortunatly, lighhtpd does not support ".htaccess" rules directly. So if you want to use a script targeted for Apache, you have to implement your own rules.

Luckily, the most needed rule is to forbid the serving of a whole directory, the "Deny From All" rule.

This one can be emulated within the lighttpd.con -- but you have to list every affected directory.  A tedious task to find out every .htaccess contianing the rule and then adding the path to the configuration.

But this can be automated:

Squirrelmail and lighttpd -- An Installation Guide --

Posted by coldtobi | 9 Jan, 2010, 21:57

As my setup is not the regular "Apache" based one, it might make sense to show how it has to be configured with lighttpd as web server.

Lets start.

Manually upgrading horde3 on debian

Posted by coldtobi | 19 Feb, 2009, 00:15 Debian is currently in freeze. (As finishing this, debian just released Lenny!) As a consequence many packages are quite outdated.

For example, the horde framework I use on my NAS is quite old and misses some features I'd like to have.

However, there are some pitfalls when using the debian version and trying to update with the upstream version, as the "debian way" stores some files at different locations, which is ok.
