difficulty installing lighttpd+php5+fastcgi on Ubuntu 10.04


Most tutorials do not mention anything about editing the lighttpd.conf file.

As I understand it, the following need to be modified:

The mod_fastcgi module needs to be loaded.

Code:
server.modules              = (
            "mod_access",
            "mod_alias",
            "mod_accesslog",
            "mod_compress",
            "mod_fastcgi",
#           "mod_rewrite",

And this code needs to be added - BTW: this keeps giving me an error. And most tutorials do not mention adding anything like this.
Code:
# fastcgi
fastcgi.server = ( ".php" => ((
                     "bin-path" => "/usr/bin/php-cgi",
                     "socket" => "/tmp/php.socket"
                 )))

What's your question? What have you done? What isn't working?

Installed and tested lighttpd, it worked.

Code:
sudo apt-get install lighttpd
Installed php5-cgi

Code:
sudo apt-get install php5-cgi
Edited php.ini

Code:
sudo vi /etc/php5/cgi/php.ini

# put this line at the end of the file
cgi.fix_pathinfo = 1
Editited lighttpd.conf


Code:
sudo vi /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf

# included mod_fastcgi

server.modules = (
“mod_access”,
“mod_alias”,
“mod_accesslog”,
“mod_fastcgi”,


# put the following code in the file
# the following seems to cause the parser error

fastcgi.server = ( “.php” => ((
“bin-path” => “/usr/bin/php5-cgi”,
“socket” => “/tmp/php.socket”
)))

Restart lighttpd,

Code:
# /etc/init.d/lighttpd restart
Duplicate config variable in conditional 0 global: fastcgi.server

Your quotes are wrong. Use regular quotes ("") not smart quotes (“”). You also seem to have two fastcgi.server directives. Inspect /etc/lighttpd/conf-enabled/10-fastcgi.conf and perhaps remove the one in lighttpd.conf. What's around line 165 in lighttpd.conf?
