Hopefully I can improve my ability to identify and correct mistakes.

I will contemplate these questions and try to find the right answers.

Is it because "~^ /phpmyadmin/.*\.php$" will be the longest prefix
string *and* will be selected because even though nginx would find
regular expressions in the configuration file that match the URI
request, the "^~" modifier instructs nginx to not search the regular
expressions?[0]

I am not sure if the rest of my setup provides reason to not implement
this improved location block: ~^ /phpmyadmin/.*\.php$
The deployments are simply WordPress + phpMyAdmin + ownCloud + Roundcube
with the last two on subdomain vhosts.

But, doesn't "...the location with the longest matching prefix is
selected and remembered. *Then regular expressions are checked, in the
order of their appearance in the configuration file. The search of
regular expressions terminates on the first match, and the corresponding
configuration is used.* If no match with a regular expression is found
then the configuration of the prefix location remembered earlier is
used" imply that all requests are subject to the entirety of the
configuration file and not just a specific location block?

For example, if one specifies a location, such as /example/.*\.php$ and
assigns certain directives inside that location block, if there are
other matching expressions (\.php$) in the configuration file, they
could supersede any directives contained within the /example block
simply *because they come before the /example block?*

It is good; repetition makes practice. And this point you reiterate is a
rule I am struggling to understand but that needs to be understood.
Thanks again, Francis. Your input is very helpful. Much obliged.

"If the longest matching prefix location has the “^~” modifier then
regular expressions are not checked."
