[pkg-lighttpd] Bug#572279: /usr/share/lighttpd/use-ipv6.pl is a configuration file / contains port number.

Package: lighttpd
Version: 1.4.26-1
Severity: normal


I wanted to setup lighttpd so it doesn't use the port 80 (because I want
to enable both apache and lighttpd on my test lapptop;)

The two setting below are missleading:

> ## Use ipv6 only if available. (disabled for while, check #560837)
> include_shell "/usr/share/lighttpd/use-ipv6.pl"
> ## bind to port (default: 80)
> # server.port               = 81

The first one does not only enable IPv6, but also get lighttp to listen
on port [::]:80. On the other hand, server.port=81 isn't sufficient to
get lighttpd to listen to port 81 only.

So one have to modify use-ipv6.pl to change to listening port... so it's
a configuration file.

(Couldn't "use-ipv6.pl" parse the calling configuration file ??)

If the file remains "configurable", it should be in /etc/

Thanks for maintaining lighttpd,
