The instructions for setting up lighttpd with the proxy server are missing one important detail.

At the beginning of the lighttpd.conf file, you need to add an entry for mod_proxy to the server.modules section. The modified line should look like the following, plus any added modules and potentially with a different set of modules commented out.

server.modules              = (
#                               "mod_rewrite",
#                               "mod_redirect",
#                               "mod_auth",
#                               "mod_status",
#                               "mod_fastcgi",
#                               "mod_simple_vhost",
#                               "mod_evhost",
#                               "mod_cgi",
#                               "mod_compress",
#                               "mod_ssi",
#                               "mod_usertrack",
#                               "mod_rrdtool",
                                "mod_accesslog" )

This is a particularly nasty thing to omit, since mod_proxy does not make even a commented appearance in the default configuration file. Details for mod_proxy (which can do some really nifty things) are at  http://www.lighttpd.net/documentation/proxy.html
