Who want to install the server from source have to take the Suse or RedHat rc-script as skeleton to write a own Debian startup script. I’ve done this and want to share the little script with you. More here
There is a little difference to the other startup scripts. The debian one offers the possebility to “rotate” the access-log. Rotate is maybe the wrong word, let’s say “free”, because it only moves the old log to a different place and reopens the logfile by sending SIGHUP to the server.
