Lighttpd web server

Before you start

Before proceeding, ensure you had a look at the Requirements page.

Install required packages

Follow instructions below to setup Bacula-Web using Lighttpd instead of Apache or Nginx web server


The following instructions are based on Ubuntu 20.04 (Focal Fossa) using PHP 8.0.28

Install Lighttpd package

$ sudo apt-get install -y lighttpd php-fpm

Enable fastcgi configuration

$ sudo lighttpd-enable-mod fastcgi
$ sudo lighttpd-enable-mod fastcgi-php

then restart Lighttpd service

$ sudo systemctl restart lighttpd

Install PHP extensions

$ sudo apt install -y php-pdo php-xml php-pdo php-sqlite3 php-mysql php-pgsql php-cli php-xml

Configure Lighttpd

Update Lighttpd server configuration

$ cat /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf
# vhosts
include "/etc/lighttpd/vhosts.d/*.conf"

Create the file below

$ cat /etc/lighttpd/vhosts.d

$HTTP["host"] == "ltd-bacula-web.domain.local" {
  server.document-root = "/var/www/html/bacula-web/public"
  server.errorlog = "/var/log/lighttpd/bacula-web-error.log"

Running the config test should return this result

$ sudo lighttpd -t -f /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf
Syntax OK

Restart and check Lighttpd server status

$ sudo systemctl restart lighttpd

$ sudo systemctl status lighttpd

If everything went well, you can now proceed with the installation using Composer, or the Composer package (follow one of the link below)
