.SH SERVICE MANAGEMENT FACILITY
.sp
.LP
The \fBlighttpd14\fR package for Solaris (\fBweb/server/lighttpd-14\fR) includes all of the files necessary to register Lighttpd with the Service Management Facility described in \fISMF(5)\fR. The following procedure describes the steps to automate service management for lighttpd.

Note :
.RS +4
.TP
.ie t \(bu
.el o
The the full name of the lighttpd service is svc:/network/http:lighttpd14
This can be abbreviated to lighttpd14 which is the \fBinstance name\fR of the service.
.RE

.RS +4
.TP
1.
To enable the lighttpd14 service.
.sp
.in +2
.nf
example% svcadm enable lighttpd14
.fi
.in -2

The state of the service instance changes to \fBonline\fR,
and the lighttpd14 service instance is now available:
.sp
.in +2
.nf
example% svcs lighttpd14
STATE          STIME    FMRI
online         11:22:17 svc:/network/http:lighttpd14

2.
To disable the lighttpd14 service instance,
.sp
.in +2
.nf
example% svcadm disable lighttpd14
.fi
.in -2

The state of the service instance changes to \fBdisabled\fR,
and the lighttpd service instance is no longer available:
.sp
.in +2
.nf
example% svcs lighttpd14
STATE          STIME    FMRI
disabled       11:35:15 svc:/network/http:lighttpd14

.SH USER AUTHORIZATIONS
.sp
.LP
You can use \fBRBAC(5)\fR to authorize otherwise non-privileged users to manage
the \fBlighttpd14\fR service.
To allow a user to manage the \fBlighttpd14\fR service states, add a line to
\fB/etc/user_attr\fR of the form:
.sp
.in +2
.nf
<username>::::type=role;profiles=Lighttpd 14 Administration,All
.fi
.in -2
.sp
.LP
Where <username> is the name of the user being granted the authorisation. If the user already has an entry in \fB/etc/user_attr\fR, add the "Lighttpd 14 Administration" profile to his or her entry.

.SH SPAWN-FCGI CHANGES
.LP
Version 1.4.23 of the Lighttpd web server sees the refactoring of the spawn-fcgi utility into a separate source distribution and as a result, spawn-fcgi has been spun out into a separate package named web/fastcgi/spawn-fcgi. The Lighttpd packages install web/fastcgi/spawn-fcgi as a dependency and provide symbolic links from the original locations of the spawn-fcgi executable and manpage to the locations delivered by the spawn-fcgi package, i.e.:
.sp
.in +2
.nf
/usr/lighttpd/1.4/bin/spawn-fcgi -> /usr/bin/spawn-fcgi

/usr/lighttpd/1.4/share/man/man1/spawn-fcgi.1
                    -> /usr/share/man/man1/spawn-fcgi.1
.fi
.in -2
.sp
.LP
These symbolic links may be removed in a future update of the Lighttpd packages
.sp
.RE

.SH CONFIGURATION OPTIONS
.sp
.LP
At this time, use of multiple Lighttpd worker processes is discouraged and is not supported by the Lighttpd community. From version 1.4.23 the supplied configuration file has the following line removed:
.sp
.in +2
.nf
server.max-worker = 4
.fi
.in -2
.sp
.LP
The result of this change is that by default, Lighttpd will be run with a single worker process

.SH NOTES
.sp
.LP
In addition to the documentation and man pages included with Solaris,
more information is available at http://www.lighttpd.net\&.
.sp
.LP
The Lighttpd man pages are provided with the programming modules. To
view the manual pages for the Lighttpd modules with the man command, add \fB/usr/lighttpd/[version]/man\fR to the MANPATH environment variable.
See \fBman(1)\fR for more information. Running \fBcatman(1M)\fR on
the Lighttpd manual pages is not supported.
