How to redirect internally?

Hi,

I have created a config so that a URL like
www.mysite.com/abc/electronics.html is rewritten as
www.mysite.com/index.php/electronics.html?store=abc.

This is what I see in Mozilla Firebug

GET abc/electronics.html

301 Moved Permanently

GET index.php/electronics.html?store=abc

200 OK

What is annoying is that the browser now shows the rewritten URL and not
the pretty URL. How can we ensure that the redirection happens only
internally?

Thanks,
Yash

If you’re rewriting from/to inside the same server{} stanza, you can
investigate using the “last” flag in the rewrite documentation:
http://nginx.org/r/rewrite

I don’t know how you can achieve this across different server{}s (with
the obvious proviso that you can have more than one server_name in a
server{}).

HTH,

rewrites are internal, unless you do something to turn them into
redirects
(= external).

What is the rewrite directive you are using? Are are you doing anything
the documentation says makes it become a redirect?

I suggest you show your wider config and some verbose curl -v output
against nginx.

All the rewrites are marked as last. e.g.
rewrite ^/([a-zA-Z]+)(.*) $2?store=$1 last;
