Before "absolute_redirect", I would have called it a bug too.

Now I just consider it "a feature".

I think that nginx has never used the port from the Host header (or from
the request line, if present) in its redirects.

I think that it might be useful for nginx to be able to use that -- as in
"a redirect could optionally use exactly the host:port provided in the
string from the request that nginx used to choose the server{}" -- but
I guess that no-one who cared enough about it provided a justification
and a patch.

And now, "absolute_redirect off;" probably makes it unnecessary.


If you know that you want to use exactly one "unusual" port in the url,
I think that it is possible to fake it using server_name and the various
*_in_redirect directives. But that is not a general solution.

Cheers,
