Can you use loggerhead with lighttpd?

Asked by Arvid Norlander on 2008-07-26

Is it possible to use loggerhead with lighttpd, either using fastcgi or some proxy based solution? And if it is possible, how is it done?

I did get some help on IRC (mod_proxy) but I still can't get it to work. I'm trying to map http://rage.kuonet.org/~anmaster/loggerhead to loggerhead, but it seems impossible to do this as loggerhead refuses to handle the path that lighttpd sends on:
[20080726-13:54:36.655] 127.0.0.1 - - [26/Jul/2008:13:54:36 +0000] "GET /%7Eanmaster/loggerhead/ HTTP/1.0" 404 - "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.8.1.15) Gecko/20080708 Firefox/2.0.0.15"

In other words, how do I tell loggerhead to strip the /%7Eanmaster/loggerhead/ bit?
Using webpath didn't help, it only caused it to become worse:
[20080726-14:15:20.113] 127.0.0.1 - - [26/Jul/2008:14:15:20 +0000] "GET /%7Eanmaster/loggerhead//%7Eanmaster/loggerhead HTTP/1.0" 404 - "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.8.1.15) Gecko/20080708 Firefox/2.0.0.15"

So please tell me how to make it work on lighttpd.

Thanks in advance.

If you're not serving loggerhead from the root of your domain, then yes, I'd expect you to have to supply webpath. I don't know why it's not working for you, but then I don't know very much about lighttpd...

Can you help with this problem?
