Re: Request for a "no capture" rewrite directive enhancement

Thanks Igor,

I had explored that method already, sadly (as you know) “alias” is
given
as an absolute path meaning I can’t use this block of config within
multiple virtual hosts which I include; - would have to re-write this
same
block of config for each Virtual host modifying the alias path prefix.

And since alias man page explicitly states that $document_root can’t be
used it’s not possible to complete this config in a reusable way. (e.g.
alias $document_root/path/to/$1/$2; would be perfect).

Alas, I think what I have (storing the captures in temp vars) is the
only
real solution thus far.

Unless the penny hasn’t dropped in my head? :slight_smile:

Then you can set these variable directly in regex:
location ~ "^/[a-f0-9]{16}/(<?resource_type>css|js)/(<?resource_path>.+)

I think Igor is suggesting PERL named captures.

Although, it appears to me the correct syntax would rather be
(?…),
as perlre docs
http://perldoc.perl.org/perlre.html#Extended-Patternsstate.
Then, just use you first syntax (omitting the ‘set’ directives).

You a re right, I have mistaken.
