    Not sure where I should have posted this...I apologize in advance if it belongs elsewhere.

    Anyway, I installed lighttpd and confirmed it is working. I am able to use ez-ipupdate to update my dyndns account and using gps.php I can located my Palm Pre on Google Maps.

    I would like to setup ipkg-web.

    Attempts to do so have failed miserably. I have copied the sluginfo.cgi and package.cgi to the same folders as the gps.php file and tried to load them explicitly in a browser but apparently the browser thinks its a txt file and loads it as such and simply displays it's contents.

    what am I missing from my lighttpd.conf file??? I have uncommented fastcgi in the conf file, is there some daemon that should also be running to handle cgi files?

    IPKG Web | pembo.co.uk

    a quick explanation of what ipkg-web is for those who don't know.


    IPKG Web isan installable package for linux that can be installed through ipkg using the following command (as root)

    Code:
    ipkg install ipkg-web
    This is a web front end for IPKG to make it easier to install new packages, upgrade packages and delete a package which you might have installed.

    It makes it so much simpler to see exactly what packages you have installed with IPKG and to see what else is available!

    Once installed, simply connect to: http://<ip address of slug>/Management/package.cgi and from there it is very straight forward!
