Change QUERYSTRING with the lighttpd proxy


First of all sorry for my English, hope you can undestand it.

I need to change the URL of the destination server with Lighttpd, I mean, someone is going to write an URL like <a href="http://my.proxy.server.com/MYQUERY" rel="nofollow">http://my.proxy.server.com/MYQUERY</a> and I need to change it to something like <a href="http://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX/search?q=MYQUERY" rel="nofollow">http://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX/search?q=MYQUERY</a>.

I tried to add an "querystring" option like the configuration below but it didn't work.

proxy.server = ( "" => ( ( "host" => "XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX", "port" => 80, "querystring" => "/search?q=$HTTP[querystring]" ) ) )

I also tried to force changing the URL with the code below but it didn't work neither.

$HTTP["url"] =~ "^/"{ server.querystring = "/search/q=$HTTP[querystring]" }

What can I do? Does lighttpd have this feature?



Found it. First of all I need to have the mod_rewrite activated, then before the proxy configuration I just need to rewrite the url, like:

url.rewrite-once = ( "/(.*)" => "/search?q=$1" )

Thank you all.
