Lighttpd on FreeBSD

(If you don't want PHP skip step 2)

=== Step 1. Verify ports installation ===

You should have a recent ports tree installed on your system. If you have not updated your ports tree recently, please do so before continuing. If you do not have a ports tree installed, you can use the portsnap utility to install or update it. I find this to be an extreemly quick way (under 15 minutes on a decent broadband connection) to install the full ports tree. And you don't even have to worry about cvsup or setting up configuration files.

Download most recent ports snapshot: {{{
$ sudo portsnap fetch
or
  1. portsnap fetch
    }}}
    Example output: {{{

    }}}
    Extract snapshot: {{{
    $ sudo portsnap extract
    or # portsnap extract
    }}}
    Example output: {{{
    (... a lot of directories ...)

    }}} === Step 2. Install PHP 5 === {{{
    cd /usr/ports/lang/php5
$ sudo make config
or
  1. make config
    }}}
    Verify that CGI and FastCGI are checked (default), and you want to enable REDIRECT as well. Choose ok. (Perhaps discard-path support as well?)
Now to compile and install it: {{{
$ sudo make install clean
or
  1. make install clean
    }}} === Step 3. Install lighttpd === {{{
    cd /usr/ports/www/lighttpd
$ sudo make config
or
  1. make config
    }}}
    Verify whatever options you want for your installation of lighttpd.
Now to compile and install it: {{{
$ sudo make install clean
or
  1. make install clean
    }}} === Step 4. Post install configuration ===
