Installing on Lighttpd

  • Hi All,

    I’m trying to move over from Apache to Lighttpd, but I’m getting a 404 error from my WordPress-MU site when I’m trying to access the BBPress installer.

    At the moment, I just have WordPress-MU installed, and the site.conf file says:

    server.error-handler-404 = “/index.php”

    url.rewrite-once = (

    “^/(.*/)?files/$” => “/index.php”,

    “^/(.*/)?files/(.*)” => “/wp-content/blogs.php?file=$2”,

    “^(/wp-admin/.*)” => “$1”,

    “^/([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-.*)” => “/$2”,

    “^/([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*.php)$” => “/$2”,


    I tried adding a line in there that said:

    “^(/forum/.*)” => “$1”,

    Thinking that would stop WordPress-MU from ‘taking over’ the URL, but it didn’t help.

    I’ve searched the forums and found some lighttpd rewrite rules for once the site is installed. I tried adding some of those, but with no joy.

    Any pointers would be much appreciated.
