Description (last modified by mdounin)

I have nginx config

its part

location ~ ^/api/(?<module>.+)/doc/ {
    autoindex on;
    index index.html;
    alias /home/dmac/www/hub/hub/modules/RestApi/Resources/Doc/$1;
    error_log /var/log/nginx/hub-test-error.log debug;
}

But when i make request, i have error

2015/03/06 18:46:43 [error] 11158#0: *1 opendir() "/home/dmac/www/hub/hub/modules/RestApi/Resources/Doc/dashboar" failed (2: No such file or directory), client: 127.0.0.1, server: hub.dev, request: "GET /api/dashboard/doc/ HTTP/1.1", host: "hub.dev"

OR

2015/03/06 18:29:37 [error] 9941#0: *1 opendir() "/home/dmac/www/hub/hub/modules/RestApi/Resources/Doc/consultan" failed (2: No such file or directory), client: 127.0.0.1, server: hub.dev, request: "GET /api/consultant/doc/ HTTP/1.1", host: "hub.dev"

I try change config

location ~ /api/(consultant|dashboard)/doc/ {

but error the same.

But if i disable "autoindex" i have error

*3 directory index of "/home/dmac/www/hub/hub/modules/RestApi/Resources/Doc/consultant" is forbidden, client: 127.0.0.1, server: hub.dev, request: "GET /test/consultant/doc/ HTTP/1.1", host: "hub.dev"

Nginx has access to this directory.

The problem is that alias set doesn't ends with / for directories. This results in incorrect paths created by index module (it will try to use something like /path/to/directoryindex.html, and also affects how autoindex works (when opening a directory it strips the last character in path, assuming it's /). Trivial fix is to rewrite config to make sure directory paths from alias ends with /, like this:

location ~ ^/api/(?<module>.+/)doc/ {
    autoindex on;
    index index.html;
    alias /home/dmac/www/hub/hub/modules/RestApi/Resources/Doc/$1;
    error_log /var/log/nginx/hub-test-error.log debug;
}

Note well that correct behaviour happens automatically when using root.
