Package: lighttpd
Version: 1.4.19-1~bpo40+1
Severity: normal


I just upgraded to this backport and got the following error message:

Stopping web server: lighttpd.

   What would you like to do about it ?  Your options are:
    Y or I  : install the package maintainer's version
    N or O  : keep your currently-installed version
      D     : show the differences between the versions
      Z     : background this process to examine the situation
 The default action is to keep your current version.

conf-available/05-auth exists, but the symlink is called and points to 10-auth, which doesn't exist.
