I am new to nginx, and am still learning my way.
I use nginx to serve static html pages to users, and in particular, I
users who visit ‘www.example.com/public/doc/abc123?para=data’ to be
with the file ‘/home/www/example/public/doc/abc123/abc123.html’ on the
server, but ‘www.example.com/public/doc/abc123?para=data’ stays in the
user’s browser address bar.
So there are two issues here: 1. map URI pattern ‘/public/doc/blah’ to
‘/home/www/example/public/doc/blah/blah.html’ on the server; 2. keep
string ‘?parap=data’ in the address bar.
I wonder if these can be solved by using
try_files within a location
block. For example, substring the $uri to take out ‘/blah’ part, and
it to the $uri followed by ‘.html’. And possibly append $args after
How exactly do we do this in nginx? Thanks!
