Nested location blocks?

A few days ago someone mentioned here that nested location
directives/blocks are supported, but are undocumented because there are
some issues with it or it doesn’t work as expected in all cases, or
something like that.

Anyway I was hoping to get more information as to what exactly the
concern/issues are so I can decide if that’s something that would still
work for me. Can someone please elaborate? Thanks!

I have cooked up a patchset to support nested locations some time ago.
Feel free to use it with some caveats:

  • nginx 0.5.35 only
  • it has known bugs which I can’t be bothered to fix at the moment
    (e.g. nesting regex locations fails spectacularly) – I just work
    around them
  • it’s pretty intrusive as it introduces the notion of creating/merging
    configuration sections at runtime (vanilla nginx only does it while
    parsing the config file)
  • when I migrate to 0.6, I’ll probably remodel my config files and drop
    the patchset altogether.

If you’re not discouraged yet, :slight_smile: have a look at my nginx repo at
git.localdomain.pl.
