Description redhat-bugzilla 2011-07-15 14:38:10 UTC
Description of problem:
There are 2 problems, first is that the init.d script for lighttpd is written to use systemd but there is no actual systemd service file, so systemd trys to run the /etc/init.d/lighttpd script which obviously makes the whole thing fail

The second problem i guess is related to this same thing but, even to start lighttpd manually, you must first create /var/run/lighttpd folder and chown it to lighttpd user

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install lighttpd
2. try to start it up with init.d scripts or systemctl
Actual results:
It won't start

Expected results:
It Starts

Can you please try the lighttpd-1.4.28-3.fc15 package from updates-testing? I think that all of your problems should be fixed there. The /var/run/ directory problem has already been reported as bug #656612.

Comment 2 redhat-bugzilla 2011-07-20 12:50:02 UTC
this testing package works great :) thanks

Comment 3 Matthias Saou 2011-07-25 08:55:12 UTC
