Trying to get alias and seo urls working with uwsgi but no luck

hi there,

I’m new to nginx and trying to configure nginx and uwsgi to get
alias+seo url working, something like this:

http://domain.com/shop/product/123 - /shop is an alias and shop dir
doesnt exist in filesystem under doc root, and this url trying to pass
query string as ?product=123

to get alias working, my config:

location /shop {
  alias     /public/webshop;
  index main.py;
}

location ~ ^/shop.+\.py$ {
  root /public/webshop;
  rewrite /shop/(.*\.py?)$ /$1 break;
  include    uwsgi_params;
  uwsgi_pass unix:$uwsgi_socket;
}

It’s working fine, as http://domain.com/shop/ finds
“/public/webshop/main.py” and pass to uwsgi socket. However
http://domain.com/shop/product/123 always report 404 not found - nginx
tries to locate “/public/webshop/product/123” and ofc it’s not there…
whereas http://homer.unisport.dk/shop/?product=123 works fine as usual.

What I’m trying is to forward all request starting with /shop to
/public/webshop/main.py and let python script parses url. I have tried
googled a lot nginx rewrite rules, e.g. rewrite ^/shop/(.*)$ /$1 permanent;
but with no luck. Maybe I’m so bad at understand nginx rewrite,
therefore looking for any advice here.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

You need to make copy of uwsgi_params, say, uwsgi.conf,
Then remove this line from the new file:
uwsgi_param PATH_INFO $document_uri;

and use this configuraiton:

location /shop {
uwsgi_pass unix:/path/to/uwsgi/socket;
include uwsgi.conf;
uwsgi_param PATH_INFO /public/webshop/main.py;
}

Alos, you should not
set $uwsgi_socket /path/to/uwsgi/socket;
