    I've some problems here

    I've apache and lighthttpd installed and running and I've a hosting server using WHM

    When I create an account it uses our httpd.conf, I need it to be created in lhttpd.conf instead
    (using lighthttpd instead of apache )

    it added the entries in httpd.conf

    I need it automatically added to lhttpd.conf

    Is there any solution | how do I make it ?

    Go on, have a guess
    You could probably do it using a /scripts/postwwwacct script (search the forums for that) and script it yourself to add whatever you want to the alternative configuration file. With cPanel you cannot simply replace apache with another web server.

    although it would be nice to see cpanel supoprt lighthttpd some other control panels support switching between apache and lighthttpd namely lxadmin.

    I loaded up a VPS today with 256 mb of ram and just for giggles I tossed a couple sites on it and swapped back and forth between apache and lighthttpd.

    Average Memory Usage: including running os Centos 5
    Apache = 108MB
    Lighthttpd = 24MB

    Thats a huge differance, this was not a very scientific test but I was able to repeat the results every time.
