I'm thinking of installing Omeka on my site. It seems to be just what I've been looking for (and I'm a great Zotero fan). The only problem is that the installation instructions only mention Apache but not Lighttpd, which is what I use. Is there a work-around or an alternative set of instructions?
We don't have alternative instructions for Lighttpd installs, but it would be a great addition.
Omeka itself doesn't really rely on Apache-specific features much, but obviously the .htaccess file we ship with Omeka does.
The big thing would be converting the RewriteRule directives from the .htaccess into lighttpd mod_rewrite rules. I think it would be pretty straightforward, but lighttpd doesn't support exactly the same things that Apache does for rewriting.
Thanks for your reply. So basically you're saying it can be done as long as you know how to do it? Problem is, I don't, but I guess I can mess around with it to see what I come up with. Or rejig the installation on the server (except that Apache is more memory hungry and Lighthy is running beautifully).
