alias.url = (
  "/doc/" => "/usr/share/doc/",
  "/images/" => "/usr/share/images/"

$HTTP["url"] =~ "^/(doc|images)/" {
        dir-listing.activate = "enable"

        $HTTP["remoteip"] != "" {
                url.access-deny = ( "" )

In my local setup, I use http://mysql/ to host PHPMyAdmin, http://pgsql/
to host PHPPgAdmin, http://drupal/ to host drupal, etc., so I have to
comment out the above (otherwise http://pgsql/images/ doesn’t work).

I’m far from being a lighttpd configuration czar, but maybe both the
Policy and me could be satisfied by wrapping the above in something
like this:

$HTTP["host"] == "localhost" {
