Well what an ordeal that was! Trying to implement virtual hosting on Lighttpd. Sure enough, the 7 year old "tutorial" was woefully flawed and left me staring at blank white screens when I was lucky, or 403 Forbidden when I was not. So I tried another, then another, getting nowhere except watching my ageing yet quicken. So I googled "Lighttpd virtual host" and read through all of the first dozen sites/articles/whatever. I figured if I read as much as I could, I would eventually understand the concept behind it all so I could try the install myself. To my astonishment, it worked!
I quickly am backing up my SD as we speak, then a shower and to bed. It is 10pm here and we're taking to the road for a few days. I'll have internet access but no router access so I'll not be continuing on this til next week. Then I'll be [trying to] install WordPerfect for the sites, always a guaranteed thrill. But for now I am one step ahead.
