Rewrites to get PHP and Statics Working in Virtual Sub Folders

Using MU Wordpress with the folder install as opposed to the subdomain
install I initially couldn’t get the admin section php files or the
statics
working.

MU Wordpress folder install creates blogs like so:

domain.com/blog/
domain.com/secondblog/
domain.com/thirdblog/

The admin section is handled by the folders in the root physical
location:

/home/site/public_html/wp-admin

The admin sections on the blogs are mapped to:

domain.com/wp-admin/ (this is for the main blog which worked with no
changes)
domain.com/secondblog/wp-admin/
domain.com/thirdblog/wp-admin/

The admin sections on the blogs also has virtual static files like this:

domain.com/secondblog/wp-admin/wp-admin.css

I got all this working with the adding the following to the conf. I’m
just
wondering, is there a better way to do it?

location ~*
^.+.(html|jpg|jpeg|gif|png|ico|css|zip|tgz|gz|rar|bz2|doc|xls|exe|pdf|ppt|txt|tar|mid|midi|wav|bmp|rtf|js)$
{
root /home/THEBLOG/public_html;
rewrite
^/.(/wp-./.*.(html|jpg|jpeg|gif|png|ico|css|zip|tgz|gz|rar|bz2|doc|xls|exe|pdf|ppt|txt|tar|mid|midi|wav|bmp|rtf|js))$
$1;
expires 10d;
break;
}

location ~ .php$ {
rewrite ^/.(/wp-admin/..php)$ $1;
fastcgi_pass 127.0.0.1:xxxx;

So the entire conf file is this on Nginx 0.6.4 :

server {
listen 80;
server_name THEBLOG.com;

access_log logs/THEBLOG.access.log;

location ~*
^.+.(html|jpg|jpeg|gif|png|ico|css|zip|tgz|gz|rar|bz2|doc|xls|exe|pdf|ppt|txt|tar|mid|midi|wav|bmp|rtf|js)$
{
root /home/THEBLOG/public_html;
rewrite
^/.(/wp-./.*.(html|jpg|jpeg|gif|png|ico|css|zip|tgz|gz|rar|bz2|doc|xls|exe|pdf|ppt|txt|tar|mid|midi|wav|bmp|rtf|js))$
$1;
expires 10d;
break;
}

location / {
root /home/THEBLOG/public_html;
index index.php;

rewrite ^./files/(.) /wp-content/blogs.php?file=$1;

if (!-e $request_filename) {
rewrite ^.+/?(/wp-.) $1 last;
rewrite ^.+/?(/.
.php)$ $1 last;
rewrite ^(.+)$ /index.php?q=$1 last;
}

}
error_page 500 502 503 504 /50x.html;
location = /50x.html {
root /var/www/nginx-default;
}

location ~ .php$ {
rewrite ^/.(/wp-admin/..php)$ $1;
fastcgi_pass 127.0.0.1:xxxx;
fastcgi_index index.php;
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME
/home/THEBLOG/public_html$fastcgi_script_name;
include /usr/local/nginx/conf/fastcgi_params;
}
}

server {
server_name www.THEBLOG.com;
rewrite ^/(.*) http://THEBLOG.com/$1 permanent;
}
