Default CentOS with Lighttpd

Hi,

I'm new here. I've been recently experimenting with a local, old server of mine and am strictly using it for testing purposes. I saw HowtoForge's tutorial on Lighttpd + PHP5 + MySQL + CentOS 5 but it doesn't give any installation instructions for the server. Because CentOS automatically comes with Apache by default, how would you configure a box with CentOS 5 on it with Lighttpd (without Apache)? On the Lighty installation page it says use a "naked distribution." What kind of stuff should I check or un-check in the CentOS install when I pop in my CDs to install CentOS?

Tip

Follow this tutorial:http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_centos5.0 until chapter 6; on the software selection screen, you don't have to select any servers.

Thanks... the installation and stuff worked and Lighttpd came up right after the first yum installation. I continued on with the tutorial to get Lighttpd working and I modified lighttpd.conf to enable fastcgi. I then restarted via /etc/init.d/lighttpd restart and now when I run /etc/init.d/lighttpd status it says lighttpd dead but pid file exists. How can I fix this to get Lighttpd working again? It worked right after the install but after enabling FastCGI, it's "dead." Any ideas?

Thanks for your help! Awesome site!

EDIT 1: Here's the error.log file:

Quote:
2008-06-14 16:15:13: (log.c.75) server started
2008-06-14 16:15:13: (mod_fastcgi.c.904) bind failed for: unix:/var/run/lighttpd/php-fastcgi.socket-0 No such file or directory
2008-06-14 16:15:13: (mod_fastcgi.c.1340) [ERROR]: spawning fcgi failed.
2008-06-14 16:15:13: (server.c.908) Configuration of plugins failed. Going down.
EDIT 2: I commented out the server.fastcgi() stanza in the lighttpd.conf file and rebooted. Now the server works fine. It's a problem with FastCGI, that's for sure. Any ideas?

What does your lighttpd.conf look like?

#include "lighttpd-inc.conf"

#### include_shell
#include_shell "echo var.a=1"
## the above is same as:
#var.a=1

Does it work when you use
Code:
"socket" => "/tmp/php-fastcgi.socket",
?

What's the output of
Code:
ls -la /var/run/
?
