$host doesn't work with case insensitive domains

Hi

for example,

domain.com will work fine.
but if I will request Domain.com/DOMAIN.COM/domAin.com
it will result in a Not Found 404 (because there is no
“/var/www/html/domAin.com” etc.)

I used the $host variable for virtual hosts
root /var/www/html/$host;

it happens because the directory is in lowercase name in linux
(/var/www/html/domain.com)
so is there anyway to make nginx read all incoming domains as lowercase
ones ?

p.s sorry for the bad english.

thanks.

Why don’t you use Embedded Perl (
http://wiki.nginx.org/NginxEmbeddedPerlModule ) to do a string to
lower type function , so the path is sanitized?

Thats a good idea, but I dont know how.

The attached patch fixes the bug. It’s suitable for 0.8 and 0.7.

IMO, considering domain name is case insensitive, it should be done
internally.

It seems you did copy/paste from forum message. For some reason the
patch
was not placed as separate file with forum message. Try this:
http://sysoev.ru/nginx/patch.host.lowcase

Thanks Igor!

but there seems to be a problem with the patch ?

patch -p0 < nginx.patch

patching file src/http/ngx_http_request.c
patch: **** malformed patch at line 6: static ngx_int_t
ngx_http_process_request_header(ngx_http_request_t *r);

also with 0.7 there is no success.
