Lighttpd Opencart url rewrites

Posted October 13, 2013 3.4k views
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 (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 to (plus https counter parts) using url rewrites in lighttpd. Please help!
