The problem looks to be that you specified a "site root" during install of
"/", when it should have been "/reviews/". You can modify your
conf/ to change this (and FORCE_SCRIPT_NAME should probably
be an empty string).

I'm going to be landing new lighttpd config generation in another day or
two, which will fix a lot of out-of-the-box install issues with lighttpd.
