lighty-enable-mod, lighty-disable-mod - enable or disable configuration in lighttpd server


lighty-enable-mod [module]
lighty-disable-mod [module]


This manual page documents briefly the lighty-enable-mod and lighty-disable-mod commands.

lighty-enable-mod and lighty-disable-mod are programs that enable (and respectively
disable) the specified configuration file within lighttpd configuration.

Both programs can be run interactively or from command line. If either program is called
without any arguments, an input prompt is displayed to the user, where he might choose
among available lighttpd modules. Immediate action is taken, if a module name was given on
the command line.

Both programs indicate failure in their exit status. lighty-enable-mod or lighty-disable-
mod respectively may leave execution with one of the following exit codes:

0 denotes success

1 denotes a fatal error (e.g., a module could not be enabled, or a dependency was not

2 denotes a minor flaw (e.g., a module was not enabled because it was already loaded

You can (un-) load several modules at time. The exit status will only reflect the most
serious issue (where a minor flaw beats no error, but a fatal error beats a minor flaw).
This means, if a minor flaw was encountered as well as a fatal error, the program will
leave with exit status 1 and stop immediately.


Debian allows lighttpd modules to formulate dependencies to other modules they depend on.
Configuration files are scanned for dependencies upon load or unload of modules, not at
runtime of the web server. Such a magic line has the following format:

# -*- depends: module[, module] -*-

and may appear anywhere in the file. If such a line is found, the extracted name is
interpreted as dependency to another lighttpd module. lighty-enable-mod will seek
available configurations to satisfy this dependency and will recursively enable all
dependencies found on its way. lighty-disable-mod will disable reverse dependencies
