Regression in 1.14 when following upstream redirects

May 14, 2018 01:22PM
Hello,

There is a problem when nginx is configured to try to follow redirects (301) from upstream server in order to cache responses being directed to, rather than the short redirect itself. This worked in 1.12 and earlier releases. Here is the simplified configuration I use and which used to work:

server { proxy_cache something;
location / { proxy_pass http://upstream; }
location @handle3XX {
proxy_cache_key ...;
set $target $upstream_http_location;
proxy_pass $target;
proxy_redirect off;
internal;
}}

With 1.12 this would cause nginx to follow the redirect and return the response after the (absolute) redirect. With 1.14 something weird is going on, it returns 301 back to the client and upstream_cache_status variable is set to HIT (even though 3XX aren't configured to be cached at all). If I repeat the request, I get 500 with "invalid URL prefix in" because $target is now empty as it didn't connect to the upstream at all.

Debug logs for the critical part show this below (trimmed). Common for both nginx versions:

Now it starts to differ, 1.12:

and now goes on to proxy request to new upstream from the location response header ...

while on 1.14:

2018/05/14 16:19:08 [debug] 8112#8112: *45398 add cleanup: 000000000D97C620

2018/05/14 16:19:08 [debug] 8112#8112: *45398 http request count:2 blk:0
2018/05/14 16:19:08 [debug] 8112#8112: *45398 http finalize request: -4, "/path" a:1, c:1
and it basically never proxies to new upstream server ...

1.12 eventually responds with 200 or 404 from where the first upstream redirected nginx to, while 1.14 just passes 301 from the first upstream. Configurations when testing were the same, only nginx binary was different.
