Nested Locations Better???

February 12, 2011 02:33PM
Just noticed that in Igor's response to an earlier query of mine on a separate issue, he took code I had shown effectively as ...

[code]
location /set/subset/ {
abc;
}
location /set/ {
xyz;
}
[/code]

... and wrote it like this in his response ...
[code]
location /set/ {
location /set/subset/ {
abc;
}
xyz;
}
[/code]

I had put the first location block on top so that it would be processed since both would match but now wondering if the nested version is more efficient.

I had been under the impression that nested locations were to be avoided but seeing Igor writting the code in that manner got me wondering.

Is it better to have them all independent as I had originally shown were Nginx would match against the two in some cases and then choose the closest match out of the two, or the second, nested version where it will always match the broader location and then sometimes also match the tighter location inside?

Also, how many layers deep can this go if so?

Thanks
