Hello,
First, here are a thread of the problem I need to fix:
http://support.silisoftware.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=11
http://forum.lighttpd.net/topic/77623

The situation I have is that I'm trying to use phpThumb by calling the images this way:
http://domain/_images/thumbs/phpThumb.php/320;/_images/200806181018580.jpg

the above way works fine in Apache, but I don't know why it doesn't work that way in lighttpd. It only works the standard way like this:
http://domain/_images/thumbs/phpThumb.php?src=/_images/200806181018580.jpg&w=320

so I think that maybe using the mod_rewrite rule could be a way to work around it. Bu I have no knowledge at all of how to do this.

So basically what I'm looking for is a way to call the phpThumb the way its shown in the first example by setting a mod_rewrite rule for it.

I need it ASAP.

Thanks,


PS: Why there's no category zone for lighttpd under web servers in EE?

LightHttp does not have the multiviews like apache has. There are workarounds.


With a .htaccess file in /thumbs/ you can have
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule 'phpThumb.php/(.*)$ phpThumb.php?$1 [L]

Do I need to change something in lighttpd config to .htaccess to work?

I created that file under the thumbs folder, but it seems that is not doing anything.

Thanks

Fixed it thanks to James, the developer of phpThumb. :)

Just needed to add this line to the configuration under fastcgi.server and it fixed it:
"broken-scriptfilename" => "enable"

Thanks Roonaan for your help too.... have a nice day.
