Upstream Fallback if Backends can´t be reached

Hi Forum, i´m new to nginx and trying to realize the following. I want
to Loadbalance two Backends and have nginx to be the ssl Proxy. That
works so far.
I want nginx to rewrite a particular url to something else. That works
too.
But now i want to send the Clients to a maintenance site, if both
Backends fail, and i´m fighting like crazy here, but can´t get it to
work. Maybe you can give me some advice, here is me config:

user nginx;
worker_processes 1;

#error_log logs/error.log;
error_log logs/error.log notice;
#error_log logs/error.log info;

pid logs/nginx.pid;

events {
worker_connections 1024;
}

location /org {
proxy_pass http://org;
}

Something like:

proxy_intercept_errors on;

location /org {
proxy_pass http://org;
error_page 502 503 504 /error/page.html
}

location /error {
root /path/to/my/error/pages;
}

Maybe?
Probably have typos, done from memory

Hi Brian,

Hi Brian, that works like a charm! Thanks a lot!

But now i have some other but close requirement.

Right now i´m browsing to my site with URL
https://10.194.100.50/example-online or https://10.194.100.50/examle-org
and everything works. But if i go to https://10.194.100.50 i get
“Welcome to nginx” and if i go to https://10.194.100.50/exaaaapleeeee
(wrong target) i get “404 Not found” “nginx”

I would like to have all wrong URLs within https://10.194.100.50 to go
to my error.html

Is that possible?

Thanks in advance
