Running lighttpd2

You need two config files for lighttpd, which are usually in the following two locations:

The contrib/ directory in the sources includes example config files.

Then start lighttpd2 with:

/usr/sbin/lighttpd2 -c /etc/lighttpd2/angel.conf

The process will not fork into background, you need to do that yourself if you want that.
Our recommended way to run lighttpd2 is runit (have a look at the contrib/service directory).
