Nginx proxypass issue

We have a setup in which nginx proxypass is working fine for tomcat like
this:

server {

listen 80;

server_name app.geo.com;

location /app {

proxy_pass https://192.168.1.100:8080/app;

}

Now while accessing http://app.geo.com/app is working fine.

Now we need to access the same application as
http://app.geo.com/paymentbut we need the tomcat war as same app. We
configured proxypass as follows:

server {

listen 80;

server_name app.geo.com;

location /payment {

proxy_pass https://192.168.1.100:8080/app;

}

But while accessing http://app.geo.com/payment tomcat application app is
not loading properly. We are not getting any reliable error message.

Can any one please help us to configure on this scenario.

Thanks

Most likely, the problem is that your backend links various
resources (e.g., images) using “/app/” url prefix, while
externally visible prefix is “/payment/”.

Simpliest and most reliable solution is to fix/change backend to use
links you need (many apps have configuration options like
“baseurl” or something like this).

As a hack/workaround, you may also try changing prefix using nginx
itself, e.g., using sub_filter[1]. This approach may have
problems and not recommended though.
