For those who don’t know me all that well, I’m a lighttpd fan. I use it for serving web data from all sorts of systems: PHP, HHVM, Python, and even Lua have run on my servers, and all through lighttpd.

Just switched this server (dedi.nexisonline.net) to HHVM, a recode of PHP by Facebook. The process went smoother than expected, although I switched the ChanMan/testing server to HHVM a while ago, and therefore had some prior experience.
Unfortunately, HHVM has rather piss-poor documentation on how to get it running on Lighttpd, which is fairly odd, considering they have docs for Apache and nginx. – MORE
