Package: lighttpd
Version: 1.4.19-5
Severity: normal

Hello lighttpd team!

After installation of lighty using apt-get install lighttpd, I enabled fastcgi 
in preparation to installing trac. Interestingly, this broke lighttpd, port 80
was not listening anymore.

Steps to reproduce:

apt-get install lighttpd
lighty-enable-mod fastcgi
invoke-rc.d lighttpd restart
telnet localhost 80

The reason seems to be that the example fastcgi configuration file that comes 
with the lighty package configures PHP (which I do not have installed) as 
fastcgi service. Combined with bug #482601, this stops lighty from working.

Obviously there is a simple work around, but I think it should work without
messing with the conffile.

Thanks, Torsten
