Configuring Zend Framework 2 with lighttpd

As a basis we use the ubuntu , but serves to any distribution, just know locate the configuration file lighttpd (lighttpd.conf)

Accessing lighttpd.conf

In ubuntu the file is located in / etc / lighttpd in other distributions.

Run command:

find / -name lighttpd.conf 

Make sure that the mod_rewrite is active.

server.modules = (
# "Mod_rewrite"

Remove the ‘#’ back of the “mod_rewrite”, and voila! Ready a part.

Configuring mod_rewrite

On my server I use the mod_simple_vhost , but for those who do not use, simply remove the portion of the $ HTTP ..

This is the configuration of a personal project

As the Zend Framework, you need everything to be redirected to the index.php, as it is used to make friendly url

HTTP ["host"] = ~ "(^|\.)" {
server.document-root = "/home/hoo/public_html/demo/public"
server.errorlog = "/var/log/lighttpd/websites/hoo_error.log"
accesslog.filename = "/var/log/lighttpd/websites/hoo_access.log"
setenv.add-environment = (
"APPLICATION_ENV" => "development",
"ZF2_PATH" => "/home/hoo/public_html/zf/library"
url.rewrite-once = (
".*\(.*)$" => "/index.php? $ 1"
".*\(js|ico|gif|jpg|png|css|html).$" => "$0",
"" => "/index.php"

The part that really matters is to set the folder with server.document-root , if it is not in default, and the part of url.rewrite-once

First things first. Explaining the url.rewrite-once:

On the line below, it redirects everything we been through GET to index.php like GET

. "*\(.*)$" => "/index.php?$1" 

In this he avoids the redirect of static files, all directed to the actual file.

 "*\(js|ico|gif|jpg|png|css|html).. $" => "$0" 

Here, everything is called will be redirected to index.php

 "" => "/index.php" 


For those who do not know should know!
