I'm running lighttpd on a Debian Lenny host. My lighttpd version has a bug where it doesn't recreate its compress.cache-dir on startup (I have it set to use /tmp/lighttpdcompress/). As a result, on reboot, lighttpd fails to start. What can I do to have the system recreate this directory before it runs lighty's init script?
Thanks to all! I'm switching to a directory under /var/tmp to sidestep the problem.
