Fixed, I don't normally put things in the root of my webserver and forgot
about the permissions. The diode does still check out with my DMM, but it
looks plastic to me which is why I mentioned it - it's not your usual 1N4001
glass type and I don't have another I can compare it with since my other
Lisa is a 2/10 and the I/O board is different.
