Redirect /olddir to /newdir

February 01, 2011 01:44AM
Hi all,

I need your suggestions to create a rewrite rule in nginx that will redirect the user from an old dir to the new one:
http://domain.com/olddir/some/dir/ to http://domain.com/newdir/some/dir/

location /newdir/ {
try_files $uri $uri/ /newdir/index.php?$uri&$args;
location /olddir/ {
rewrite ^ http://domain.com/newdir$request_uri? permanent;

The above rule does not work, it will redirect the user to http://domain.com/newdir/, instead of http://domain.com/newdir/some/dir/.
If an user types the http://domain.com/olddir/some/dir/ url, nginx should automatically redirect him/her to http://domain.com/newdir/some/dir/. Right now, it brings the user to http://domain.com/newdir/.

Thanks for your help.
