Simplify Dropbox URLs with Lighttpd

By | 2009/02/26

Some time ago I posted on how to simplify your dropbox URLs by using .htaccess files within Apache web server. Now that I’ve switched to Lighttpd I needed to find the equivalent. Here is what I came up with:

## dropbox redirection
server.modules += ( "mod_redirect" )

$HTTP["url"] =~ "^/dropbox/(.*)" {
url.redirect = (
"^/dropbox/(.*)" => "$1"

note: if you already have mod_redirect loaded elsewhere you won’t need to worry about that first line. Also note that you’ll need to update the URL with your unique string. Replace 123456 with your unique value. You can find this value within your Dropbox account.
