Thank for the reply Dutch_Master. I've looked at the link and checked for the files in *packages.sw.be/rpmforge-release* which is where I get lighttpd for Centos.
The Debian *fastcgi* makes reference to php5.cgi and php5.cgi isn't available to me
Maybe I just haven't found it yet !!
lighttpd plays OK for me but without php support ; I found that I had to make changes to the downloaded *fastcgi.conf* file as when I checked the syntax I was getting errors .
Isn't trying a new project fun
Cheers and beers
