Default Error starting Lighttpd

Hello there i am running a webserver on ubuntu 8.04

My problem is since recently without changing anything to the server it keeps dropping permission for lighttpd log directory

so i have to run a command each time to chown the directory before i can get lighttpd running

Error Below

opening errorlog '/var/log/lighttpd/error.log' failed: Permission denied
Opening errorlog failed. Going down.

I have to run chown -R www-data:www-data /var/log/lighttpd before restarting the server, does anyone knows how to fix this please.

Thank you. I used the tutorials found on this site to Install my webserver
You guys ROCK

Thanks in advance
