lighttpd - web page to display directory listing in html format
« on: February 13, 2011, 05:05:52 AM »
Hi,

I want to share my music files by having it accessible as a web page.

I started with loading lighttpd and php5 extension and starting it with the following script:

#!/bin/sh
HTTPD=/usr/local/sbin/lighttpd
HTTPD_ROOT=/mnt/sdc1/music
HTTPD_CONF=$HTTPD_ROOT/lighttpd.conf
cat << EOF > $HTTPD_CONF
server.document-root = "/"
server.port = 8080
server.username = "nobody"
server.groupname = "nogroup"
server.chroot = "$HTTPD_ROOT"
index-file.names = ( "index.html", "index.php")
EOF
exec $HTTPD -D -f $HTTPD_CONF

and I saved a test file called index.php with the following contents in /mnt/sdc1/music

<?php
phpinfo();
?>

but when I try to view the web page with 192.168.2.7:8080 I get 404 - Not Found error.

For some reason it does  not seem to find the file and I can't see why.
I am also clueless on  how to get lighttpd to present a directory of all the subdirectories and files to download.

Can anyone suggest where to look to resolve this problem?  TIA

Perhaps edna.tcz might serve your purpose, in case all you want is to share mp3 and ogg files.

lighttpd looks in $HTTPD_ROOT/htdocs for web pages. You will need to put index.php in /mnt/sdc1/music/htdocs.
