Hi there,

The problem with this setup is that if one tries to access, say,, Nginx will issue a 301 redirect adding a trailing
slash, but the Location will be set to “”. This seems
to be due to the proxy_set_header directive, which is needed for the
backend server to find the appropriate virtual host.

Is there any way to override this behavior and have Nginx redirect to instead? I tried turning on the
server_name_in_redirect directive, but it didn’t work.
