Re: rewrite rule: MediaWiki to static site

Seems like you have a solution, but i've done this recently in the reverse
and found this configuration to be incredibly helpful, with little reason
to ever update. I check the primary (static in my case) site first and if
it 404's it is sent to a different proxy_pass. As you can guess i use the
Play Framework.

location @corporate {
proxy_pass http://corporate-server$uri;
proxy_intercept_errors on;
recursive_error_pages on;
error_page 404 = @play;
}

location @play {
proxy_pass http://play-server$uri;
}

then in the main location block i simply have:

location / {
include /etc/nginx/shared_foo; #this is simply shared headers, nothing
to do with the logic
try_files $uri @corporate;
}

As @corporate will send to @play only if required.

I mainly put it out here b/c if someone is searching, this is a way to go
about it, without creating a map. We will add more to static and more to
Play overtime, as we already have, and this keeps on chugging.

Best,
Jeff
