Completed the conversion just this afternoon. Toshiba Satellite 4015CDS, 160 mb ram.

See don.homelinux.net/~don

Will change the PCLOS and Apache 2 "stuff" at the bottom of the page in the near future. Wonder if I can get graphics to use for antiX and lighttpd? (I will check Google images.)

:-)

Much faster than it was running Apache 2.

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. :oops:

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).

Very sweet dieselbenz.
I don't use lighttpd, but I'm glad to hear that it is a good app.
