Include infos into config via shell command

5 May 2009, 18:03

In lighttpd there is a way to include configuration files via "cat".

Would look sth like

include_shell "cat /etc/mime.types"

I would enjoy sth like that possible also. Or is it and I just cant find?

Use the Include configuration option (as described in the manual page):
Include <filename>|<directory>

If you specify a directory, all the files and subdirectories in that directory are included.

Ok, but I cant execute a script which would give me back configurationoptions dynamically, lets say by querying a database.

Nope, that's not possible. Sorry.
