How to Install lighttpd on FreeBSD

On FreeBSD is very easy to install LIGHTTPD using the ports system:

$ cd /usr/ports/www/lighttpd
$ make install clean
=> lighttpd-1.4.18.tar.gz doesn't seem to exist in /usr/ports/distfiles/.
=> Attempting to fetch from http://www.lighttpd.net/download/.
lighttpd-1.4.18.tar.gz 100% of 784 kB 210 kBps
===> Extracting for lighttpd-1.4.18_1
=> MD5 Checksum OK for lighttpd-1.4.18.tar.gz.
=> SHA256 Checksum OK for lighttpd-1.4.18.tar.gz.
===> Patching for lighttpd-1.4.18_1

===> lighttpd-1.4.18_1 depends on shared library: pcre.0 - found

===> Registering installation for lighttpd-1.4.18_1
===> SECURITY REPORT:
This port has installed the following files which may act as network
servers and may therefore pose a remote security risk to the system.
/usr/local/sbin/lighttpd

This port has installed the following startup scripts which may cause
these network services to be started at boot time.
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/lighttpd

If there are vulnerabilities in these programs there may be a security
risk to the system. FreeBSD makes no guarantee about the security of
ports included in the Ports Collection. Please type 'make deinstall'
to deinstall the port if this is a concern.

For more information, and contact details about the security
status of this software, see the following webpage:
http://www.lighttpd.net/
===> Cleaning for lighttpd-1.4.18_1

 

Installation done ! Be careful that, if you already have apache installed/running or if you want to run lighttpd with apache on same server, you'll have a conflict as both are binding to port 80 by default, so you will want to configure lighttpd to listen to port 81 for example:

$ vim /usr/local/etc/lighttpd.conf
.......(OUTOUT OMMITED)
## bind to port (default: 80)
server.port = 81
.......(OUTOUT OMMITED)

Uncomment the line that starts with server port directive, save the file and restart it (/usr/local/etc/rc.d/lighttpd restart).
