/srv/static (whose URL alias on Nginx is “/internal/static”), my
application would set the X-Accel-Redirect header to:
But then, Nginx will try to look up that file in the filesystem as:
However, if I requested “Climate_Change.pdf”, it works.
This seems like a bug, isn’t it? Or is it a bad configuration?
