try_files behaviour details

August 16, 2010 04:07PM
Hey,

I have a question about how try_files works in some cases. The standard case seems to be

server {
server_name foo;

location / {
try_files $uri index.html;
}
}

Here nginx tries $uri and then finally index.html if no other location block matches. Now say that there are no other location blocks and nginx enters location / again, the try_files directive is then skipped as it's already been used once, right?

Second example:

server {
server_name bar;

try_files $uri index.php;
}

Here try_files is used in the server block. The wiki says try_files can't be used here but Nginx will happily accept it, from my testing it seems to behave identically to the first example except it's always executed. Is this a correct assumption?
