Hey dieselbenz, that's really cool. Nice one!
Was Lighttpd fairly straightforward to set up? (I've only ever used XAMMP locally). It's one thing i keep saying i'm going to do (one of the "Many" things) but as of yet just haven't got around to it.
The server is already running (unless you tell it to not load at startup). All you do is move your web stuff to /var/www -- whatever you call index.html will be the file that executes.
The tricky part is moving stuff from your user login to the root-owned var. Would be nice if you could log in as root and do this <snicker> but you can also su- at the terminal and then invoke rox. That is how I did it. [I was running the server on a desktop system and had to move all of the web files over on a memory stick.]
A bit more tricky if you do what I do and have the web stuff in the user directory (thus the http://don.homelinux.net/~don
name) but it simply involves turning on mode_user (or something like that) then creating a symbolic link. Web stuff is then put in a directory you create called /home/don/public_html.

Since I have a dynamic IP address, I get my host name from dyndns.com (free if you manually update your settings periodically, relatively cheap if you want to avoid that hassle).
