I am currently updating the deployment docs.  I'm adding a section for
deploying on lighttpd via CGI and FastCGI.  If lighttpd is an option
for you, I think you will find it much easier to configure and get
your app up and running.  I suggest that the first section in the
deployment docs, named Running as a CGI Script, should be moved under
the Apache section.  And it should be re-written from scratch maybe.
That way when a new user sees this page, they see the nice ways to
deploy stand-alone first.  And if they have to deploy on Apache or
lighttpd, they can jump to the corresponding section that they need.
