I got the the message about Stretch being EOL etc and followed this guide to upgrade to Buster;
That mostly went well apart from a couple of prompts about updating config files, in particular lighttpd / php
I’ll hold my hand up here and say that I did not do a compare but just opted to keep my customised config files… oops!
Anyway, Lighty is running but no pages are showing [cant reach / refuse to connect] and I am getting errors in logs as follows;
Feb 18 17:15:12 domain.co.uk lighttpd: /bin/sh: 1: /usr/share/lighttpd/create-mime.assign.pl: not found Feb 18 17:15:12 domain.co.uk lighttpd: 2022-02-18 17:15:12: (configfile.c.1468) command "/usr/share/lighttpd/cr eate-mime.assign.pl" exited non-zero: 127 Feb 18 17:15:12 domain.co.uk lighttpd: 2022-02-18 17:15:12: (configfile.c.1296) source: /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd. conf line: 51 pos: 14 parser failed somehow near here: (EOL) Feb 18 17:15:12 domain.co.uk systemd: lighttpd.service: Control process exited, code=exit
Those two files defo exist though and I know from the past they are a key part of my config.
Edit1: OK there’s been some names changes…
and a future upgrade warning I fixed also…
WARNING: include-conf-enabled.pl is deprecated and slated for removal.
Replace in lighttpd.conf with:
Now I am getting a clean start and no errors in response to;
lighttpd -p -f /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf
However I am getting “503 Service Not Available” when loading page…
