proxy_pass with trailing slash issue

May 17, 2012 02:40PM
I'm using nginx (0.7.65) as a reverse proxy in front of a bunch of
Tomcat instances. A couple of years ago, following Igor's suggestions on
the mailing list, I made a minor change to the configuration to deal
with a problem with encoding/decoding with some URLs proxied to Tomcat.
I appended a forward slash to the proxy_pass, so instead of having this:

proxy_pass http://backend;

I had this:

proxy_pass http://backend/;

It fixed the problem. But it had the side-effect (at least I assume it
was this) of inserting an extraneous leading slash into the proxied URL,
so that the requests ending up at Tomcat are like this:

"GET //whatever"

It's not actually breaking anything that I know about at the moment, but
it's clearly wrong and I'd like to fix it. How do I change my config so
that I get the benefits of the trailing slash with proxy_pass without
having the extraneous leading slash in the proxied request?
