Switching to Lighttpd

Recently a lot of people seem to be switching from Apache to Lighttpd, which is a webserver that is said to be a lot faster, but even better it is said to have a constant low memory footprint.

I`m currently compiling lighttpd on my vserver (on which this blog runs), and I`ll switch to lighttpd – which should be as easy as setting some configurations for lighttpd to fit in with the current /var/www model I`m using and simply switching off Apache and switching on lighttpd.

I hope there won’t be a lot downtime.

Update Lighttpd and fastcgi don’t seem to really go together on my server configuration, so no lighttpd for a while :(.
