Wordpress clean URLS with Lighttpd, the E-Z way (See related posts)

This single line seems to work for my WP install. I needed to add a couple of redirects and rewrites to handle my RSS feed, since I use Feedburner, but this line does all the heavy lifting...

Place it after server.document-root, either in the main section or in your virtual host sub-sections...

server.error-handler-404 = "/index.php?error=404"

Yes, and make sure that in wp-admin you don't do the example


but instead just

If Wordpress is in a subdirectory of your site's root use something like:

server.error-handler-404 = "/wordpress/index.php?error=404"

I tried the above, and although pretty urls work now, my lighttpd error log is littered with this:

2005-11-29 20:05:08: (connections.c.1383) Warning: Either the error-handler returned status 404 or the error-handler itself was not found: /team/index.php?error=404
2005-11-29 20:05:08: (connections.c.1385) returning the original status 404
2005-11-29 20:05:08: (connections.c.1387) If this is a rails app: check your production.log

Normal? I'm pretty sure I did this with lighttpd v1.3.16 (or so)and didn't get the warnings but now I'm running lighttpd 1.4.8.
