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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install lighttpd
2. try to start it up with init.d scripts or systemctl
It won't start
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.
this testing package works great :) thanks
Thanks for confirming. The update is now pending to be pushed to stable.
