Installing Lighttpd and Subversion on Debian Lenny

This article is a step-by-step guide for installing Lighttpd (pronounced lighty) and Subversion on Debian Lenny. My previous setup was Subversion with Apache, however Apache was too heavy for my virtual private server so I had to move to Lighttpd Read it here

Sadly, however, there is no mod_svn for Lighttpd, and it will not be implemented in the near future. This is one of the good reasons why not.

The most common solution is to use mod_proxy and forward the command to Apache with the module dav_svn, but it doesn’t make sense to run Apache in parallel with Lighttpd if we tried to avoid using Apache since the beginning.
