    Default View offline pdf doc etc on 2.0?
    I've just upgraded to 2.0 and really miss the ability to view pdfs etc stores on the iphone as I could with Docs and many other apps on 1.14.

    I know that filemagnet achieves this aim for mac users.

    Is there any solution for windows users?

    Lighttpd is working now, but without PHP, the directory listings aren't too pretty. Still works fine though, and it shouldn't be too long before we have the old solution back.

    I had tried lighttpd before posting, but I cannot find the config file (/usr/local/etc/lighttpd.conf ). This folder does not seem to exist.

    Is there another way to configure it in 2.0?

    I just manually created the directories at those locations and copied my old lighttpd.conf and lighttpd-htpasswd.user files into it. Then I modified the old daemon with the new path of lighttpd:

    /usr/sbin/lighttpd

    and installed it in /Library/LaunchDaemons

    Finally, I activated the daemon with:

    launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.amcgregor.lighttpd.plist

    There may be a better way, but that did the trick for me.

    Thanks for the reply.

    That looks a little too complicated for me. How do you modify the daemon?

    Think I'll be waiting for the update!
