Hello

I am adding the following lines in lighttpd.conf

server.modules += ( "mod_setenv" )
setenv.add-request-header = ( "X-Proxy" => server.name )

But when reloading getting following error:

Reloading web server configuration: lighttpdUndefined config variable: server.name

But when change it to following it works fine

server.modules += ( "mod_setenv" )
setenv.add-response-header = ( "X-Proxy" => "www-02" )

It is not getting  server.name. I have got this example from http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/mod_setenv-lighttpd-send-custom-headers/ and trying to implement at my place but failing.

Please help

In your config, add this line above the ones you posted here.

Change the "ex" to whatever you want your server name to be.

server.name = “ex”

Open in new window

In correctly configured PHP on a LAMP stack you can usually find the client's IP address here:

$_SERVER["REMOTE_ADDR"]    

It is a string that looks something like this:

98.169.58.122

This is not 100% foolproof, but I have found it to be pretty reliable.  HTH, ~Ray

Read the question first, Ray ;o)

To the last question: Change the server.name to server.bind in both lines: "X-Proxy" => server.name becomes "X-Proxy" => server.bind and server.name = "servername" becomes server.bind = "IP-address"

Best of luck!

Well, it was posted in the PHP zone, and the Asker wrote, "Actually I want to put the client's IP address to this variable."  Guess you can't please everyone!

Hello trencH87

Your solution is quite closer and may be perfect as per this question's scope.

But the task I want to do ultimately is that I want to pass the User's IP (not server's) to a new CGI Variable. I have opened a new question for this and will be really thankful If you can help:
