Debian's WordPress package depends on
apache|httpd, lighttpd also provides httpd, but when I try to install WordPress, apt requires me to install apache2!
What I should do? I want to use only lighttpd !

According to the Debian package page for wordpress, it appears that lighttpd should satisfy the dependency. However, it also requires
php5, which is why I think it still pulls in Apache: while you have installed lighttpd, you may have forgotten to install the matching PHP package.
php5 are both installed before installing
wordpress, and that should fix your problem.
