Mono + FastCGI

January 23, 2008

Reggie pointed me to the FastCGI support for Mono. For our lighttpd they have a full featured page that should cover all possible configuration needs.

Feel free to try it out and comment on this article if it works as expected.

Giving Solaris some love

October 28, 2007

Weekend time is hacking time. This weekend it is about getting 1.5.0 running nicely on Solaris and making sure lighttpd is a first class citizen there.

All tests successful (1 subtest UNEXPECTEDLY SUCCEEDED), 88 subtests skipped.
Files=22, Tests=324, 60 wallclock secs ( 1.98 cusr +  1.03 csys =  3.01 CPU)

1.4.18 - speeding up a bit

September 09, 2007

"Release early, release often."

So here we are again. The previous release is already 12 days old! It already got grey hair.

And again we have a small security bug! It seems, if you get the more popular, more people are looking at your code. This time Mattias Bengtsson and Philip Olausson from took a look at the code. They found a small bug that could lead to remote code execution in fastcgi applications. (We wont mention names here.)
