Lighthttpd (running thread) .. secure build ??

Hello guys,
Now, i am trying to make a running-thread,so this can be used again, at any time.
I was today looking at a webserver, and wich one to use apart from the obvious, apache2 .. so.. i looked at asmhttpd and personally found this one great, but only 64bit seems to be supported.. and its abit toooo i loked at lighthttpd.
i found a million blogs about setting it up, but alot of it is quite out dated, hence this copuld be resurrected at any time and the dates etc for deb packages and whatever else changes, can be then re done..
So, i will ask of you only this: What is a GOOD and secure way to run lighthttpd BUT i wish to run this on IPV6 and, thats preferable, and a secure/chroot directory for files..basically, a carbon copy of the config file + what you think would make it best, keep in mind the conf is quite small..
so far, i have added only server.tag to it, wich is cool feature... but, i need a secure way to run this for my own uses, and possibly a few things ecould be done on this to make it abit safer for my box.
I would appreciate a detailed help and configs if possible.. or config addons YOU think are best..
Aprreciate any help on this topic.. thankyou.
