If you use apache, just make sure to set allowoverride to all, and put this in your .htaccess:

Options +ExecCGI
AddHandler cgi-script .lua

Then WSAPI is your friend.

If you want to try another alternative (very experimental) check Nutria Nemo:, it does not requires WSAPI, nor Kepler, just CGILua (for a few weeks more). Also notice that Nemo depends on Seawolf (Standard PHP Library implemented in Lua)

Hmmm... How did you get plain cgilua working?

I never actually managed to get wsapi/cgilua/anything kepler-related working
with fcgi, but CGI worked fine when I tried. A friend of mine tried even harder
to make things work with fcgi, but he ended up using CGI aswell, if I recall
correctly...  I guess something is broken at fastcgi.

Kind regards,

I'm trying to get cgilua to work on an embedded arm platform. I've
compiled and installed lua, fcgi, luafilesytem, cgilua and wsapi. I've
manged to get things tweaked so that wsapi.fcgi stops giving me lib
errors. Now what? I'm pretty sure it's just a matter of configuration
and perhaps file placement, but I am unable to find any resources beyond
"run apt-get and luarocks" - which I tried, by the way on Ubuntu and
ended up having luarocks barf on me with syntax errors.

So, where do I start?

I'm also using lighttpd, and not apache. I tried using thttpd but gave
up on that.

I'll send more details as needed, the stuff I've done so far would be
lengthy to post.
