    Okay, so I've recently moved my webserver box from Server 2003 with Apache 2.2.x to Ubuntu Server 11.04 with Lighttpd. I like it way better, so much faster, however I'm setting up a store online for my mom using PrestaShop right now. It has the feature of "Friendly URL's", which I would like enabled. However, it doesn't have a settings file available for Lighttpd anywhere public that I can find, been looking for awhile.

    Now, I've found a Lighttpd setup that people seem to be claiming works, but when I use it, everything works in terms of rewriting pages and what not, but the images for categories and items don't show up.
    I'm not the greatest with htaccess and rewrite strings, so if anyone can help me out, that would be great. Heres the info I got:

    This is my setup I'm currently using to rewrite on my lighttpd box:
    Code:
    	# ReWrite rules for the PrestaShop software.
    	url.rewrite-once = (
    		"^/([a-z0-9]+)\-([a-z0-9]+)(\-[_a-zA-Z0-9-]*)/([_a-zA-Z0-9-]*)\.jpg$" => "/img/p/$1-$2$3.jpg",
    		"^/([0-9]+)(\-[_a-zA-Z0-9-]*)/([_a-zA-Z0-9-]*)\.jpg$" => "/img/c/$1$2.jpg",
    		"^/lang-([a-z]{2})/([a-zA-Z0-9-]*)/([0-9]+)\-([a-zA-Z0-9-]*)\.html(\?(.*))?" => "/product.php?id_product=$3&isolang;=$1$6" ,
    		"^/lang-([a-z]{2})/([0-9]+)\-([a-zA-Z0-9-]*)\.html(\?(.*))?" =>"/product.php?id_product=$2&isolang;=$1&$4",
    		"^/lang-([a-z]{2})/content/([0-9]+)\-([a-zA-Z0-9-]*)(\?(.*))?" =>"/cms.php?id_cms=$2&isolang;=$1&$4",
    		"^/lang-([a-z]{2})/([0-9]+)\-([a-zA-Z0-9-]*)(\?(.*))?" =>"/category.php?id_category=$2&isolang;=$1&$5" ,
    		"^/([a-zA-Z0-9-]*)/([0-9]+)\-([a-zA-Z0-9-]*)\.html(\?(.*))?" => "/product.php?id_product=$2&$5" ,
    		"^/([0-9]+)\-([a-zA-Z0-9-]*)\.html(\?(.*))?" =>"/product.php?id_product=$1&$4",
    		"^/([0-9]+)\-([a-zA-Z0-9-]*)(\?(.*))?" =>"/category.php?id_category=$1&$4" ,
    		"^/content/([0-9]+)\-([a-zA-Z0-9-]*)(\?(.*))?" =>"/cms.php?id_cms=$1&$4" ,
    		"^/([0-9]+)__([a-zA-Z0-9-]*)(\?(.*))?" =>"/supplier.php?id_supplier=$1&$4" ,
    		"^/([0-9]+)_([a-zA-Z0-9-]*)(\?(.*))?" =>"/manufacturer.php?id_manufacturer=$1&$4",
    		"^/lang-([a-z]{2})/(\?(.*))?" => "/index.php?isolang=$1&$2"
    	)
    
    This is the .htaccess code it generated for a Apache setup during setup:

    They don't provide a setup for lighttpd from what I can find, sadly. The category and item photos don't show up, the category photos are linked in the fashion of "http://store.mystore.com/-home/.jpg", and the item photos are linked as "http://store.mystore.com/55-medium/test.jpg". I'm sure that first one is wrong, not sure about the second. The photos are indeed in the locations they are supposed to be at for the rewrites, too. They show up fine if I turn the rewrite feature off.

    If someone could help me figure out the correct string, or point me to a lighttpd setup, that would be awesome.
    Also, if you don't quite understand what I mean and you are good with this stuff and wanna see yourself, PM me and I'll shoot you the link. It's a public site, but I don't really want it publicly linked on this site. :)

    Looking at the rewrite rules it generated, one question pops to mind: Who designed this shit?
    (Not helpful, I know, but still...)

    Well, I don't know much about this stuff as of right now, but I thought the same thing. I looked at it and thought "there has to be a less repetitive way to do this...". Lol
    But oh well, I just find it amazing that with software as big as PrestaShop, that they only offer a .htaccess config and nothing else. Lighttpd is what most people on linux use...

    Lighttpd is nice but it is still Apache that is most popular on Linux. The LAMP stack (Linux Apache MySQL PHP) is the big one in the industry.
    Now then, if you want to experiment, try out Litespeed (http://litespeedtech.com). It supports the standard Apache .htaccess files and rewrite rules but is a whole lot faster.

    As for what you have there, do you have any virtual hosts setup? If so, where is that rewrite block located? In the virtual host itself or in the main config file?

    I indeed do have vhosts set up, and the rewrite block is located inside the vhost setup for that one site.
    This is the vhost setup for the site at hand, and all the vhost settings are placed at the very bottom of the lighttpd.conf file.

    Code:
    # store.mysite.com VHost Setup
    $HTTP["host"] =~ "(^|\.)store.mysite.com$" {
    	server.document-root =		"/Web-store/www/store.mysite.com/htdocs"
    	server.errorlog =		"/Web-store/www/store.mysite.com/logs/error.log"
    	accesslog.filename =		"/Web-store/www/store.mysite.com/logs/access.log"
    	server.error-handler-404 =	"/Web-store/www/store.mysite.com/htdocs/404.php"
    
    	# ReWrite rules for the PrestaShop software.
    	url.rewrite-once = (
    		"^/([a-z0-9]+)\-([a-z0-9]+)(\-[_a-zA-Z0-9-]*)/([_a-zA-Z0-9-]*)\.jpg$" => "/img/p/$1-$2$3.jpg",
    		"^/([0-9]+)(\-[_a-zA-Z0-9-]*)/([_a-zA-Z0-9-]*)\.jpg$" => "/img/c/$1$2.jpg",
    		"^/lang-([a-z]{2})/([a-zA-Z0-9-]*)/([0-9]+)\-([a-zA-Z0-9-]*)\.html(\?(.*))?" => "/product.php?id_product=$3&isolang;=$1$6" ,
    		"^/lang-([a-z]{2})/([0-9]+)\-([a-zA-Z0-9-]*)\.html(\?(.*))?" =>"/product.php?id_product=$2&isolang;=$1&$4",
    		"^/lang-([a-z]{2})/content/([0-9]+)\-([a-zA-Z0-9-]*)(\?(.*))?" =>"/cms.php?id_cms=$2&isolang;=$1&$4",
    		"^/lang-([a-z]{2})/([0-9]+)\-([a-zA-Z0-9-]*)(\?(.*))?" =>"/category.php?id_category=$2&isolang;=$1&$5" ,
