Rewrite URL


I try to use Nginx as a proxy (for SSL) on a Jetty server. The Jetty
application should be accessed by a subdirectory of my Nginx. I have
setup this location configuration:

location /myapp {

proxy_pass              http://localhost:8112;

proxy_set_header        X-Forwarded-Host    $http_host;
proxy_set_header        X-Forwarded-Proto   $scheme;
#proxy_set_header        X-Real-IP           $remote_addr;
proxy_set_header        X-Forwarded-For 

proxy_http_version 1.1;
proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
proxy_set_header Connection “upgrade”;
client_max_body_size 650M;


The Jetty server runs under http://localhost:8112, if I change the
location /myapp to location / everything works fine. The Jetty server
returns URLs with the base URL /, so on this configuration CSS / JSS
files are not found.
How can I rewrite the URLs, so that all files are found within the
directory /myapp ?

Hi Phil,

You should specify a URI (e.g., a trailing slash) in the URL specified
by the proxy_pass directive:

location /myapp {

 proxy_pass              http://localhost:8112/;

See Module ngx_http_proxy_module for more info.
