Okay, I'm back. I got lighttpd working, so it can now serve up simple html. However, I can't get it to do php. I did install php from slackfind.net (php version 5.3.6-i486-6), but when I tested an "index.php" page on the server, it stated that it was "403 Forbidden".
I think I need fastcgi first, which I can't find on Gslapt. ....
Hmm, after perusing the net with good ol' DuckDuckGo, I found some information. So, since I have php installed, I tried the following:
mark:$ php -v
php: error while loading shared libraries: libmcrypt.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Seems I need libmcrypt installed. So, I did install this from Gslapt (libmcrypt version 2.5.8-i586-1vl70). So, after testing, I see that php is primed to work:
mark:$ php -v

There's no starter file that I can find in /etc/rc.d, so that doesn't seem to be it. Anyway, I found a page with some possible clues at the Arch wiki
and at this other site
, so I'll try some suggestions from there and report back -- I don't need to make a diary of every effort I make here, I figure.
Anyway, if anyone else has any helpful hints or can give me some useful url referrals (aka links), then please do so.
