XSLT, one XML file and differing URIs

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone could put on the right path to do the
following,

So in it’s simplest form, lets say I have one file “chapter.xml” in
directory A

/A/chapter.xml

I want to use nginx XSLT processing ability to “present” this file based
on
different URIs, so

If someone accesses /A/ it presents chapter.xml using XSLT file
chapter.xsl,
if someone accesses /A/sec1/ it presents chapter.xml using XSLT file
sec.xsl and passes it parameter 1, if someone accesses /A/sec2/ it
presents
chapter.xml using XSLT file sec.xsl and passes it parameter 2.

etc.

I can achieve the first one as follows

location /A/ {;
xslt_stylesheet chapter.xsl;
index chapter.xml
}

but I’m stuck on /A/sec1 /A/sec2 etc

Thanks,

Dave

The “alias” directive should do the trick, see
http://nginx.org/r/alias.

Something like this should work:

location /A/ {
    xslt_stylesheet chapter.xsl;
    ...
}

location /A/sec1/ {
    alias /path/to/A/;
    xslt_stylesheet sec.xsl;
    ...
}
