Hi I want to configure lighttpd with rails how the configuration is done is this only run in the linux ? can i test in localhost in windows.
If you're running on Windows, why on Earth would you want to abandon IIS? IIS has all kinds of Enterprise features like Application Pooling, and is ready-built for Microsoft's management tools. Your SysAdmins are more likely to accept a Rails solution if you provide them with an MSI install file. That's considered standard practice for any Windows developer.
Neither Lightttpd nor Apache can even get close to that kind of integration without introducing third-party monitoring and deployment tools.
I don't think that's what he meant. Amit probably just wants to test it out on a window machine. I personally don't use lighttpd but Amit, try this
