Dreamhost PS: free https by using lighttpd


I’m a cheap bastard and would like to have https on my PS.

I’d like to setup lighttpd myself and have it listen on 443, is this possible? Has anyone done this?

Haven’t done it myself, but I’m sure you could do it easily.

You can get signed certificates from DH for 15 bucks a year btw.

Yeah, the certificates are 15, but the ‘secure hosting’ option and the fixed ip run you up to 90 a year.
