path-based reverse proxy

September 04, 2010 05:25AM
Hi all,

I'm new to nginx and I'm looking for a path-based reverse-proxy.
Here's my setup.

nginx server has $PUB_IP, listening to port 80
I have two webservers with $IP1 and $IP2

I want to access my main server from a browser with http://$PUB_IP and the second server with http://$PUB_IP/myapp

I can't find how to do it.

I tried defining two servers in sites-available, default and myapp, but since they listen on the same port, I always have the same server with both http://$pub_ip and http://$pub_ip/myapp. Seems logical to me since nothing can tell nginx wich server it was supposed to redirect to.

I have tried to put another location in site-available/default, like this

server {
...
location / {
proxy_pass http://$IP1
}

location /myapp {
proxy_pass http://$IP2
}
}

But that doesn't work. I can only have the main page of site2, not even the images in the same directoriy. And by the way that looks wrong, 'cause site2 isn't another directory of site1, it's another webserver...


So could somebody give me an example or a little help with that ?

Thx a lot !

PS : I have no access to the dns. I can't play with the names like www.site1.com and www.site2.com
