I am a newbie to lighttpd maintenance. In apache2 when I add a site(virtual host) file to sites-available, I will have to use the a2ensite command to activate it. If the vhost is example.conf, I will have to run the command below to activate it.

sudo a2ensite example

and then restart apache.

I see there are other sites which are in the conf-enabled folder, but I cannot see mine. I even ran lighttpd-enable-mod on the conf file, but for some reason I cannot find a symlink even though I restart the lighttpd server.

How do I do the same in lighttpd??

This is distribution dependent - could you add the tag for the distribution you are using? –  Paul Jul 18 '13 at 6:28
