Hi Neel, lighttpd is not well-supported, which is why it's considered an advanced option. Very few people seem to use it.
I'd *strongly* suggest using Apache + mod_wsgi (daemon mode works well these days), if at all possible. You'll have the best support that way. FastCGI is a bad option. We've seen people hit all sorts of issues with it. The Python community has rallied around mod_wsgi and similar solutions instead. I think you'll find that if you use the standard recommended options from rb-site, you'll have a much easier time getting going. As for the 000-default file, I'm sorry it cost you an hour of time. It is annoying that Apache ships that..
