Hi Everyone,

i try to convert some rules from apache htaccess to nginx.

This is my htaccess Rule:

 RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/$3 -f
 RewriteRule ^(.*?)/(.*?)/(.*)$ /$3

I tried these options but it seems not working:

if (-f $document_root/$3){
  set $rule_0 1$rule_0;
if ($rule_0 = "1"){
  rewrite ^/(.*?)/(.*?)/(.*)$ /$3;

Anyone have a good idea?

I suspect that some previous part of the htaccess file has a regex which
sets $3. What is that?

Or, alternatively:

What http request do you make?

What response do you want? As in, what file on your filesystem do you
want nginx to return, for this request?
