Re: Packages with httpd needs

It looks like thttpd works okay with php[45]-cgi, provided that all of the .php files have the appropriate #!/usr/bin/php[45]-cgi set

THTTPD doesn't (AFAIK) support PHP, so the applications you mentioned
can't be use with it.

Thanks for the interest in helping out, but please file bugs to specific
packages when you are certain they could use a suggestion such as yours.

I don't dismiss your suggestion completely, but bear in mind that given
the number of people and packages in debian, a non-specific email to
debian-devel is hardly likely to generate any sort of positive outcome.
