Question

Lighttpd Opencart url rewrites

I’m on the verge, this is killing me. I can’t for the life of me get the hang of lighttpd’s url rewrites. All I want is everyone to be shipped off to www. instead of accessing my website from http://domain.co.uk (and the same for https). I’ve Googled and tried every example I can find and modified them by adding back slashes and other things until lighttpd wouldn’t restart and it just seems to ignore me.

For people who don’t want to read: I need to rewrite http://domain.co.uk to http://www.domain.co.uk (plus https counter parts) using url rewrites in lighttpd.

Please help!
