I have a webserver with limited resources and therefore I decided to use lighttpd as my webserver software. However, I notice now that it does not recognizes apache .htaccess files. Most of the software I use and opensource scrips have plenty of .htaccess files in several directories. So I am nervous that I might unintentionally open security holes.
So my question would be, do I create myself issues on using lighttpd that does not use htaccess. Are there security issues I am facing when using standard open source software that is optimized for htaccess files?
I try to assess if it is better to go back to Apache 2.4. I only used lighttpd because I thought it would be less heavy on my limited resources.
