Alias not working on 0.7.35

I tried to put this configuration on my nginx.conf

location  /default/ {

    alias  /home/myhome/content/;

}



    location ~ \.flv$ {

        flv;

    }

But it doesn’t work.

When opening a FLV files, it always pointed me to the root directory
which
is /home/myhome

Is there anythink i’ve missed?

You need the last 0.7.x:

 location    /default/ {
     alias  /home/myhome/content/;
 }

 location ~ ^/default/(.+\.flv)$ {
     alias  /home/myhome/content/$1;
     flv;
 }

    }
location    /default/ {
    alias  /home/myhome/content/;
}

 location ~ ^/default/(.+\.flv)$ {
    alias  /home/myhome/content/$1;
    flv;
}

Why do we need to put an alias on the flv?
Is this method not work on 0.6.35 ?

Here’s my configuration

    root    /home/myhome;

    access_log  /var/log/nginx/access.log;

    location ~ \.flv$ {
        flv;
    }

    location    /default {
        alias  /home/yourhome/content;
    }

    location ~ ^/default/(.+\.flv)$ {
        alias  /home/yourhome/content/$1;
        flv;
    }

When I tried to access /default/filename.flv, it still redirect me to
/home/myhome/default/filename.flv. And it shows file not found

nginx -v

nginx version: nginx/0.7.46

Because “/default/some.flv” will choose “.flv$” location, but not
“/default/” one.

No, currently 0.6.x does support captures in location, and I’m not sure
if I will merged it from 0.7: there are many changes in location
processing
in 0.7.

You need to change order of regex locations:

     location ~ ^/default/(.+\.flv)$ {
         alias  /home/yourhome/content/$1;
         flv;
     }

     location ~ \.flv$ {
         flv;
     }

Otherwise, “.flv$” is matched first.

Thank’s Igor. It’s works now!

When it will be implemented into the stable version?
