Description (last modified by Maxim Dounin)

When using subrequests with try_files the following behaviour is observed.

   server {
       listen       8081;
       default_type text/html;

       location /uno {   return 200 "uno  ";   }
       location /duo {   return 200 "duo  ";   }
       location /tres {  return 200 "tres  ";  }

   server {
       listen       8080;

       location / {
           root /tmp;
           try_files /tres =404;
           add_after_body /duo;

Assuming /tmp/tres exists, a request to

returns "uno tres ", not "uno duo " or "tres tres ".

I.e., main request assumes that the request URI is unmodified and passes original request URI, "/uno".
But in a subrequest the URI is modified and nginx uses modified URI, "/tres".

This is believed to be a bug, and one of the following should be done:

  • try_files should reset the r->valid_unparsed_uri flag if it modifies the URI;
  • or try_files should not modify the URI at all.

See this thread (in Russian) for additional details.
