Attempt to rewrite using slightly deprecated /foo.php/bar/ methods

I have a script which has aliases like /login and such. If the file
does not exist, it’s supposed to go to

/controller.php/login

Where controller.php will look up based on the URI and a whitelist of
aliases and load the appropriate script. However when I try this:

if (!-e $request_filename) {
rewrite ^(.+)$ /controller.php/$uri last;
}

I get an infinite loop.

Is there a way to setup some sort of rewrite (I also tried try_files)
to make this behavior happen? I tried hacking the controller script
but I’m worried changing it from URI parsing to a GET argument will
mess up other internals of the script (it’s a third party script)

Thanks… I’ve done this in Zeus and Apache before but apparently
never tackled it in nginx yet.

location / {
# damned “if”, neutral “error_page”, or blessed “try_files” :slight_smile:
}

location /controller.php {
fastcgi_split_path_info ^(/controller.php)(.*)$;

}

Okay I’m trying to request

http://dev.foo.com/login for example, I get this:

2009/10/26 21:29:04 [error] 22831#0: *1 open()
“/home/mike/web/foo.com/loader.php/login” failed (20: Not a
directory), client: 192.168.1.2, server: dev.foo.com, request: “GET
/login HTTP/1.1”, host: “dev.foo.com

Here’s the server block… I tried following your instructions.

server {
listen 80;
server_name dev.foo.com;
root /home/mike/web/foo.com;
index index.php index.html;
location ~ .php$ {
fastcgi_pass 127.0.0.1:11000;
}
location / {
try_files $uri $uri/ /loader.php$uri;
}
location /loader.php {
fastcgi_split_path_info ^(/loader.php)(.*)$;
}
}

this works but now

fastcgi_param QUERY_STRING $query_string is empty

and the query string params aren’t being passed as GET params for
example to PHP…

ideas?
