How do I add a header to the HTTP request that was received from the client under Lighttpd web server?

You can use the setenv module (mod_setenv) which allows influencing the environment external applications are spawned in and the response headers the server sends to the clients. Edit lighttpd.conf, enter:
# vi /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf
Add mod_setenv:

 
server.modules += ( "mod_setenv" )
 

Set X-proxy header:

 
setenv.add-response-header = ( "X-Proxy" => "www-02" )
 

Or sent server itself:

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

Save and close the file. Reload lighttpd:
# service lighttpd reload
To see headers, enter:
$ curl -I http://example.com/
