Matching a href spec with Lua regex

Hi,

I am trying to modify the response body in the following way :

If there href=“http://www.google.com”, I will convert it to
href="http://nginx-ip/?url={url-encoded-form-of www.google.com}

This is what I have in my nginx.conf

location / {


body_filter_by_lua '
    local escUri = function (m)
        return "href=\\"http://10.0.9.44/?_url_=" ..

ngx.escape_uri("$1") … “\”"
end

    local newStr, n, err = ngx.re.gsub(ngx.arg[1], "href=\\"(.-)\\",

escUri, “i”)
';
}

But I cannot see absolutely any change in the href part of the response

Can someone help me understand why this is not matching ? What am I
doing
wrong ?

As usual, found my error.

The following is properly matcing the regex :

            local escUri = function (m)
                local _str = "href=\\"http://10.0.9.44/?_redir_="
                _str = _str .. ngx.escape_uri(m[1]) .. "\\""
                return _str
            end

            local newStr, n, err = ngx.re.gsub(ngx.arg[1],

“href=\”(.*)\"", escUri, “ijox”)
print(ngx.arg[1]) --> still original text

From my debug logs, I can see that the regex susbstitution is happening
properly. But the href still remains the same. Probably because of
chunked
data.

I will try to aggregate the response body and then do the substitution.
But
if someone sees anything wrong, your help would be appreciated.

Sorry for the double post, but wanted to post the complete conf … just
in
case there was a mistake

server {

    listen       80;
    server_name  127.0.0.1 10.0.9.44;

    set $_ActualTarget "";

    location / {

        rewrite_by_lua '
            local _args = ngx.req.get_uri_args()
            ngx.var._ActualTarget = _args["_url_"];
            _args["_url_"] = nil
            print(ngx.var._ActualTarget)
            ngx.req.set_uri_args(_args);
        ';

        resolver 8.8.8.8;
        proxy_pass_request_body on;
        proxy_pass_request_headers on;
        proxy_pass $scheme://$_ActualTarget;

        header_filter_by_lua '
            ngx.header.content_length = nil
            ngx.header.set_cookie = nil

            if ngx.header.location then
                local _location = ngx.header.location
                _location = ngx.escape_uri(_location)
                _location = "http://10.0.9.44/?_url_=" .. _location
                ngx.header.location = _location
            end
        ';

        body_filter_by_lua '
            local escUri = function (m)
                local _str = "href=\\"http://10.0.9.44/?_url_="
                _str = _str .. ngx.escape_uri(m[1]) .. "\\""
                return _str
            end

            local newStr, n, err = ngx.re.gsub(ngx.arg[1],

“href=\”(.*)\"", escUri, “ijox”)
print(ngx.arg[1])
';
}

    #
    # redirect server error pages to the static page /50x.html
    #

    error_page   500 502 503 504  /50x.html;
    location = /50x.html {
        root   /var/www/html;
    }
}
