This is an old revision of the document!


If you are familiar with Lighttpd, it does not support .htaccess, thus the out of the box magento installation won’t work. Never fear, however, for a simple server configuration change makes it all better.

  1. $HTTP["host"] =~ "^(www.)?example.com$" {
  2.         server.name     = "www.example.com"
  3.         server.document-root  = "/var/www/example.com/magento/"
  4.         server.error-handler-404 = "/index.php"
  5. }

Essentially, this forwards all non-existent urls in index.php for routing. Simple.
