BB/Angstrom lighttpd will not start..

I’m trying to set up a BBB as a webcam server, and to do this, I need lighttpd working… For some reason it will not start. I’ve tried unstalling it via opkg, and reinstalling. Upon reinstall, I get “Job for lighttpd.service failed. See ‘systemctl status lighttpd.service’ and ‘journalctl -xn’ for details.”

I’ve tried simply running /usr/sbin/lighttpd -D -f /etc/lighttpd.conf at an elevated shell prompt, the daemon just dies without any indication of why

Being a rank newbie on this new systemd stuff, I have no idea where to look for why this is broken…
