Hi Nginx,

I’m migrating my website into onother application. I need to rewrite
some of
these

http://www.mydomain.com/category/subcategory

into

http://www.mydomain.com/
http://www.mydomain.com/application/category/subcategory
application/category/subcategory

I need to insert /application before my category name

Thank’s before

If you use proxying, then:

location / {
    proxy_pass   http://backend/application/;
}

Possible, but why to use rewrite, if you may pass request directly where
you want ? In my opinion rewrites cause spaghetti configuration.

I prefer to rewrite it, because what we concerned is google indexing…
sometimes google will remove the old address, and getting the new one
So that when people accessing our site, they will bookmark the new
address

Bump…

you should start learning writing rewrite rules…

rewrite ^/news/(.+)/title
http://app.mydomain.com/redirect/application/$1 permanent;

OK thank’s for ur suggestion… It’s working like a charm… 1 more
question

I have a url http://www.mydomain.com/news/$id/title

How can I redirect it to
http://app.mydomain.com/redirect/application/$id ?

yes.

the method should be mentioned in any guide about regular expressions.
Which includes this [1] and this [2].

[2] http://www.regular-expressions.info/reference.html

So if http://www.mydomain.com/news/1231245/title
Then rewrite to http://app.mydomain.com/redirect/application/1231245

If http://www.mydomain.com/news/category/title
Then do nothing… just bypass to the content

Thank’s for your prompt reply…

However i tried this

rewrite “/news/([0-9] {2})([0-9] {2})([0-9] {2})/$”
http://app.mydomain.com/redirect/application/$1$2$3;

but it doesn’t work. What I’ve missed?

the spaces: “] {” -> “]{”.

may i ask why you catch three times two numbers instead of one time six?

The regexp pattern isn’t correct. You shouldn’t have spaces before
the “{2}” unless you really want to match two consecutive spaces.

Even without those spaces, this pattern would match urls like
“/news/123456/” (without “/title” and with a trailing slash), while
you said you need to match “/news/$id/title” instead. Also, if you
want to fade out the old url in the long run, you could use a
permanent redirect.

You probably want something like that:
rewrite ^/news/([0-9]{6})/title$
http://app.mydomain.com/redirect/application/$1 permanent;

The spaces fixed the problem :slight_smile:

By the way, if i have only 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 digits of numbers, it’s not
redirected

honestly, i think you should really go through some regex tutorials

It means that if I have 6 digits of numbers, it will redirect to the url
i’ve described

But if I have 5 digits of numbers, it’s not redirecting to the URL.
