Item12581: lighttpd.pl erroneously lowercases names on Mac OS X

Last Change By: GeorgeClark
For some horrible reason, on Windows and Mac OS X, lighttpd defaults to forcing lowercase urls. tools/lighttpd.pl run from the Mac OS X terminal therefore renders every topic inaccessible. For instance, it remaps "/bin/view/Main/WebHome" to "/bin/view/main/webhome", and then Foswiki complains that there is no such web or topic.

The fix is adding the configuration option server.force-lowercase-filenames = "disable" to the configuration generated by tools/lighttpd.pl . This should be a safe change since it will force misbehaving platforms to do the right thing and will do nothing on platforms where this is already the default.

Thanks for the fix. Applied, and will be in Foswiki 1.2.
