Is directive alias incompatible with module FastCGI?

Hello,

at first let me thank you for developing NginX! I use NginX 0.8.48, PHP
5.3.3 with inbuilt php-fpm version 0.6.5 on CentOS 5.5.

But there is one problem I have been trying to solve for hours without
success: I want that PHP only gets parsed in an “aliased” subfolder but
not in the parent location. Is this even possible?

I tried to achieve my aim in several ways, including this one:

server
{
  listen      80;
  server_name    subdomain.example.com;
  root      /var/www/example/html;
  index      index.html index.php;

  # Igor's suggestion from June 2009:
forum.nginx.org/read.php?2,3059,3060#msg-3060

  location ~ /test/
  {
    alias  /var/www/phpmyadmin/;
  }

  location ~ ^/test/(.+\.php)$
  {
    alias  /var/www/phpmyadmin/$1;
    fastcgi_pass  127.0.0.1:9000;
    fastcgi_index  index.php;
    fastcgi_param  SCRIPT_FILENAME  $request_filename;
    include  /etc/nginx/fastcgi_params;
  }

  location ~* \.(css|js|jpg|jpeg|gif|png|cur|bmp)$
  {
    access_log  off;
    expires  60d;
  }
}

PHP should only get parsed in

[color=#0033CC]subdomain.example.com/test/[/color] ==
[color=#CC3300]/var/www/phpmyadmin/[/color]

but not in

[color=#0033CC]subdomain.example.com/[/color] ==
[color=#CC3300]/var/www/example/html/[/color]

because another person has access to
[color=#CC3300]/var/www/example/html/[/color] via chrooted SFTP, too.

Unfortunately, index.php in
[color=#0033CC]subdomain.example.com/test/[/color] (at the moment a
simple [color=#999999]<?php phpinfo(); ?>[/color]) doesn’t get parsed
but is provided for download by Chromium, while Opera shows the source
code of the PHP file.

I also tried to nest “location” directives and to work with
if”, but that didn’t work either. For example:

location ~* /test/
{
  alias /var/www/phpmyadmin/;

  if ($uri ~ "\.php$")
  {
    fastcgi_pass  127.0.0.1:9000;
  }
}

I know that I could simply use a different subdomain for phpmyadmin, but
I wonder if it’s possible to use FastCGI / PHP together with the
alias directive.

Any help is appreciated, and if you’d like to see my complete config
files, just let me know.

Kind greetings from Austria!
Wolfgang

Hello,

I hope it is allowed to bump a topic after 10 days without an answer.

I think it’s simply a bug within nginx. And I hope, it will be resolved
at some time.

Thanks for reading and have a nice weekend
Wolfgang

move the

location ~ ^/test/(.+.php)$ { … }

above

location ~ /test/ { … }

(and make it “location /test/ { … }”
