I had a difficult time making sense of the above, because you didn't
state what host you were talking about, and you gave a URL but no file
location. Some searching was required. I can now translate that into
specifics. You seem to mean:
As I previously explained, gruyere was previously serving up the
installation default file /var/www/index.html file on requests for
URL http://www.svlug.com/index.html, until I copied lists.svlug.org's
/var/old-svlug-rfs/home/httpd/html/index.php to that directory.
Although we are stuck with PHP on gruyere, it strikes me that using a
PHP file for what is essentially static HTML content is gratuitous.
Accordingly, I've mv'd index.php to index.php.disabled as I did on
lists.svlug.org, and created the same equivalent static HTML index.html

Your 5/4 entry on ChangeLog does _not_ record this. It says:
We 2016-05-04 Daniel Gimpelevich <daniel at gimpelevich.san-francisco.ca.us>
Don Marti had pointed www.svlug.com to this server, but it was not
serving that. Fixed. Also removed phpinfo.php from the non-.org root.
Temporarily disabled lists AAAA record because apache doesn't do IPv6.
Please amend your 5/4 site-docs/ChangeLog entry on grurere to accurately
reflect whatever it was you did, that day.
By the way, please keep ASCII-file line lengths under 80 characters
per line. I keep having to reformat your additions, as yours seem to
run about 82-85, with distressing results on text display.
> As of 5/6, lists.svlug.org is no longer running PHP or Apache.
OK, confirmed, thanks. I was mislead by:
# grep -i php /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf
index-file.names = ( "index.php", "index.html", "index.lighttpd.html" )
static-file.exclude-extensions = ( ".php", ".pl", ".fcgi" )
"^/404handler.php$" => "http://www.svlug.org/404handler.php"
server.error-handler-404 = "/404handler.php"
I will note in passing that it's a good thing I just converted
file to a flat HTML index.html one -- because you broke that index.php
in your cutover to Lighty.
