Configure lighttp to simulate .htaccess rules (Deny From All)

Posted by coldtobi | 19 Jun, 2010, 13:14

Unfortunatly, lighhtpd does not support ".htaccess" rules directly. So if you want to use a script targeted for Apache, you have to implement your own rules.

Luckily, the most needed rule is to forbid the serving of a whole directory, the "Deny From All" rule.

This one can be emulated within the lighttpd.con -- but you have to list every affected directory.  A tedious task to find out every .htaccess contianing the rule and then adding the path to the configuration.

But this can be automated:
