For use with lighttpd

I used this config for setting it up with lighttpd (/etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf). Is somebody else needs anything specific please indicate.

# This is a minimal example config
# See /usr/share/doc/lighttpd
# and http://redmine.lighttpd.net/projects/lighttpd/wiki/Docs:ConfigurationOptions

server.port             = 80
server.username         = "http"
server.groupname        = "http"
server.document-root    = "/srv/http"
server.errorlog         = "/var/log/lighttpd/error.log"
dir-listing.activate    = "enable"
index-file.names        = ( "index.html" )
mimetype.assign         = (
                                ".html" => "text/html",
                                ".txt" => "text/plain",
                                ".css" => "text/css",
                                ".js" => "application/x-javascript",
                                ".jpg" => "image/jpeg",
                                ".jpeg" => "image/jpeg",
                                ".gif" => "image/gif",
                                ".png" => "image/png",
                                "" => "application/octet-stream"
                        )
include "conf.d/cgi.conf"
include "
include "conf.d/fastcgi.conf"
server.modules += (     "mod_alias",
                        "mod_fastcgi",
                        "mod_cgi"
)
alias.url = ( "/cacti" => "/usr/share/webapps/cacti" )
#alias.url += ( "/phpmyadmin" => "/usr/share/webapps/phpMyAdmin/")

Using mysqli as database_type

Going through this tutorial I also had to change the $database_type with config.php to "mysqli".

$database_type = "mysqli";

Otherwise Cacti will complain about missing mysql_pconnect() functionality. Maybe someone can verify this and incorporate it into the article?

Sounds like a logical change. The current PHP no longer supports the old mysql module so it is to be expected that it no longer works.
I've added it to the page, thanks for reporting!
