rails via lighttpd on freebsd

Greetings all,

I am trying to configure rails to run via lighttpd on a freebsd 6.1 machine. I have lighttpd running no problem and a rails app that works.

When I start lighttpd, I can see my rails app's index ( the default "Welcome Aboard" message), but when I remove index.php, I get a 404 error. Yes - my routes.rb file works. When I click the "About your rails application environment" link on the default page, I see a 404 error in the pink box.

I created my lighttpd.conf file from the instructions on this page:


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
