location vs. rewite

April 01, 2013 08:51AM
I want to server favicon from a different place rather than the root folder. As I explored I have two options

1.
location = /favicon.ico { alias /var/www/media/images/favicon.X.ico; }

2.
rewrite ^/favicon.ico /var/www/media/images/favicon.X.ico last;

As I understand the second one needs an additional regex check for every request to check if the url is favicon or not (imagine that we have a rewite of ^/(.*)\.(.*) and thus the favicon rewite must be first).

How the location works? Does it also should be checked on every request?

In general, which solution is better ?
