can you show us the module load order?
the easiest thing might be lighttpd -tp -f /path/to/config 2>&1 | less
and paste the server.modules section from it.

I did not try if the patches are working (I don't use mod_compress), so please report if it works for you.

Was having the same problem here on 1.4.18 - can confirm that the attached patch for 1.4 works.

mkdir_recursive will cause segfault while creating something like "/dir1/" (with trailing slash).

while ((p = strchr(p + 1, '/')) != NULL) {

must be

while ((*p) && (p = strchr(p + 1, '/')) != NULL)) {

I've attached a slightly modified version for 1.4.18 which is a bit smarter with mkdir's. The previous behaviour was to try and mkdir every part of a file's patch on every access (even when already in the cache). This patch moves the mkdir's to after the place where it checks for existence.

  • Status changed from New to Fixed
  • Resolution set to fixed

Fixed in r2135 for lighty-1.5.x with optimization - i hope it works ;-)
