comment setup dns to redirect all http requests on a specific machine in LAN
I think some transparent proxy could do in this case. Do you want to redirect every possible domain name this way, or some special subset you have? Failover to real Internet content when not available locally? And last thing - what operating system are we talking about?

First of all, with DNS changes only you won't be able to selectively redirect all HTTP request (and leave other types of traffic alone). Second, what's your current setup - is B your current local DNS server for all the machines (A)? Is it a gateway/router? Your best bet would be probably to use some redirection at the firewall level.

comment Rewrite URL before passing to proxy Lighttpd
And another thought - if you really need this kind of functionality without touching the second server, you can add another layer in the backend. Make a second instance of lighttpd listening on localhost (first server) and proxy your desired urls through this middle proxy, which rewrites everything for the destination proxy. I know it's not elegant (and may be too bloated), but I don't think you can achieve your goal with lighttpd 1.4.x. Rewrites take place before mod_proxy, and the request is handled from the beginning, so you can't really discern it later on.

comment Rewrite URL before passing to proxy Lighttpd
It probably depends on how badly you need this kind of functionality, and how much production stable your setup needs to be. I'm using 1.4.26, so I can't tell you how it behaves. And now thinking, maybe the best way out of this would be to rewrite this part on the proxy (secondary) server itself? If that's feasible.

comment grep/search for multiple lines in a file
I'm not sure. My knowledge of sed/awk is rudimentary. It works on mawk though - I tested. Maybe there's some difference in how it's handled.

comment How to point any *.mydomain variation to localhost (for development)?
By my side it works without /etc/hosts modifications. Setting example.com redirects *.example.com and example.com too. But maybe there's some limitation here about TLDs, I don't know. Are you using literal mydomain? ;-) Maybe mydomain.localnet would work?

comment How to rewrite index.php (and other valid default files) to the document root using mod_rewrite?
Probably not all Google employees are unanimous (tinyurl.com/adam-lasnik-on-301) ;-) But I'm not a SEO specialist, so I won't argue here. The point is - even if you lose some PR (it's same domain here, so I'm not sure if that's what Eric meant), what's the correct way to do it? I supposed your goal is to redirect all requests to root - not to allow access to the main page through .htm/.html/... (duplicate content?). Maybe I misunderstood you here.
