Unlike Apache I found LigHTTPD has a option in the config that allows you to set the version without any real difficulty. No need to adjust the source and then compile. For those interested src/response.c contains
Which basically means, if server_tag does not exist return LigHTTPD / Version, or whatever has been set previously, instead of having to adjust this like in Apache, below you will see it will print out what you have set.
So its a simple task of opening lighttpd.conf and adding
server.tag = "HostGeekZ"
Now restart LigHTTPD and it will adjust your version.
