[pkg-lighttpd] Bug#347737: base-docroot doesn't exist

package: lighttpd
version: 1.4.8-2

The document-root (/var/www) is not created by the "apt-get install", so
if you don't have created before the directory the installation will
fail (in a debian default installation /var/www not exist)

The output of apt-get install lighttpd:

Configurando lighttpd (1.4.8-2) ...
