Description

The rewrite doesn't interact properly with the index command.

Suppose I have this configuration:

events {}

http {
    include       mime.types;
    default_type  text/plain;

    server {
        listen       8080;
        
        location / {
            return 200 "requested $document_uri";
        }

        location ~ ^/~(?<user>[^/]+) {
            root "/Users/$user/Sites";
            index index.html;
            rewrite ^[^/]*/~(?<user>[^/]+)(?<rest>.*)$ $rest break;
        }
    }
}

I expect when I do a request for ~mikerobe/ that it will remap the request to the local file /Users/mikerobe/Sites/index.html (which exists). However, when I submit the request, nginx incorrectly hits the location / block.

mikerobe supamac> cat get.tcp
GET /~mikerobe/ HTTP/1.1
Host: localhost
Connection: close

mikerobe supamac> cat get.tcp|nc localhost 8080
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Server: nginx/1.2.6
Date: Mon, 18 Feb 2013 16:47:20 GMT
Content-Type: text/html
Content-Length: 21
Connection: close

requested /index.html

Only if I change the request to ~mikerobe/index.html does it return the expected page:

mikerobe supamac> cat get.tcp                     
GET /~mikerobe/index.html HTTP/1.1
Host: localhost
Connection: close

mikerobe supamac> cat get.tcp|nc localhost 8080

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

The index directive does internal redirect to a current uri with "index.html" added, see http://nginx.org/en/docs/http/request_processing.html and http://nginx.org/r/index for details. With your configuration request to "/~mikerobe/" becomes "/" after the rewrite, and then index directive does an internal redirect to "/index.html". No surprise it is processed in the "location /".

See also http://wiki.nginx.org/UserDir, which is probably what you are trying to do.

So is there a straightforward way to get the desired behavior in this case? (without having to do another slow regex match) Are you supposed to use try_files for this?

Ah, ok I guess you use an alias. Sorry. :) (I hadn't looked at your UserDir? link)
