Description

Apache's mod_proxy adds a X-Forwarded-Host header when it makes a request to the proxied server; the header contains a copy of the original Host header, and allows the proxied server to see what its public address is.

Many web application frameworks, including Rails as I write this, look for this header in order to behave correctly.

It would be wonderful if lighttpd's mod_proxy could also send this header.

That header is present already, but at the moment it is called "X-Host" in lighttpd.
