X-Accel-Redirect doesn't URL-decode paths

September 07, 2010 11:20AM
Hello,

I'm using the X-Accel-Redirect feature in Nginx, but it fails to send some files (returning a 404) because it does not URL-decode the requested path. It does work when the file name need not be URL-decoded.

So, for example, I have a file called "Mudança_Climática.pdf" in /srv/static (whose URL alias on Nginx is "/internal/static"), my application would set the X-Accel-Redirect header to:
X-Accel-Redirect: /internal/static/Mudan%C3%A7a_Clim%C3%A1tica.pdf

But then, Nginx will try to look up that file in the filesystem as: /srv/static/Mudan%C3%A7a_Clim%C3%A1tica.pdf

However, if I requested "Climate_Change.pdf", it works.

This seems like a bug, isn't it? Or is it a bad configuration?

Thanks in advance.
