Setup werc with lighttpd

You will need to enable to the following modules: mod_cgi, mod_alias and mod_rewrite (for non-minimal configurations).

You can also find mod_setenv useful to change werc’s environment ($PATH in perticular)

Minimal setup

This is the most minimal setup, for a single domain, and lets werc handle static files.

$HTTP["host"] =~ "^test\.cat-v\.org$" {
    index-file.names = ( )
    server.error-handler-404 = "/werc.rc"
    alias.url       += ( "/werc.rc" => "/var/www/cat-v.org/bin/werc.rc" ) # Here use the path to werc.rc in your system.
    cgi.assign += ( ".rc" => "")
    server.dir-listing = "disable"
}

Advanced setup

A more ellaborate setup, using virtual hosts to handle multiple domains, and alias to let lighttpd handle static files. Also show how to add external cgi’s to the setup, in this case Mercurial’s web interface.

$HTTP["host"] =~ "^((harmful|9p|gsoc|doc|uriel|src|repo|www|)(\.|)cat-v\.org|(www\.)?binarydream.org|)$" {

    index-file.names = ( )
    evhost.path-pattern     = "/var/www/cat-v.org/sites/%3.%0/"
    server.error-handler-404 = "/werc.rc"

    alias.url       += ( "/pub/" => "/var/www/cat-v.org/pub/" )
    alias.url       += ( "/favicon.ico" => "/var/www/cat-v.org/pub/default_favicon.ico" )
    alias.url       += ( "/doc/" => "/var/www/cat-v.org/sites/doc.cat-v.org/" )
    alias.url       += ( "/werc.rc" => "/var/www/cat-v.org/bin/werc.rc" )
    alias.url       += ( "/debug.rc" => "/var/www/cat-v.org/bin/debug.rc" )
    cgi.assign += ( ".rc" => "")
    server.dir-listing = "disable"

    cgi.assign += ( ".cgi" => "")
    url.rewrite-once = ( "/hg/(.*)" => "/hg/hgwebdir.cgi/$1" )
    alias.url       += ( "/hg/" => "/var/www/cat-v.org/bin/"  )
}
