Rewrite -- failure

New to this list (lurked for a couple of weeks), so hope you'll bear
with me. I'm trying to get a charity's volunteers set up to work from home.

Using nginx 1.14.0 (latest on Ubuntu 14.04LTS -- all up to date; #nginx
-V below) as a front end for a number of servers using Apache 2.4.

My problem is that I need to split serv1.example.com to two physical
servers (both fully functional on LAN). The first (192.168.aaa.bbb)
serving static https works fine. But I cannot "rewrite" (redirect,
re-proxy?) to the second server (192.168.xxx.yyy, Perl cgi) where the
request comes in as https://serv1.example.com/foo and I need to get rid
of "foo"

"rewrite ^(.*serv1\.example\.com\/)foo\/(.*) $1$2 permanent;" (tried
permanent, break, last and no flags)

is valid as a PCRE regex, but logs give me a 404 trying to find "foo"
which has nothing to do with the cgi root:

[14/Apr/2020:16:14:19 -0400] "GET /foo HTTP/1.1" 404 2471

What I am trying for is "GET / HTTP/1.1" 200

Here's my server config. Any all assistance would be greatly
appreciated -- many thanks and stay well -- Paul


server {

listen 443 ssl;
# [4 lines managed by Certbot, working perfectly]

server_name serv1.example.com;

access_log /var/log/nginx/access.log;
error_log /var/log/nginx/mysite-error_log;

proxy_buffering off;

location / { # static server, html, works perfectly,
proxy_pass http://192.168.aaa.bbb;
proxy_set_header Host $host;
proxy_http_version 1.1;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
}

location /foo { # big db server, perfect on LAN, PERL, cgi
# rewrite ^/foo(.*) /$1 break; #tried permanent, break, last
and no flags
# rewrite ^/foo/(.*)$ /$1 last; #tried permanent, break, last
and no flags
rewrite ^(.*serv1\.example\.com\/)foo\/(.*) $1$2 permanent;
#tried permanent, break, last and no flags
proxy_pass http://192.168.xxx.yyy:8084;
proxy_set_header Host $host;
proxy_http_version 1.1;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
}

}

server {
if ($host = serv1.example.com) {
return 301 https://$host$request_uri;
} # managed by Certbot

# automatically sets to https if someone comes in on http
listen 80;
listen 8084;
server_name serv1.example.com;
rewrite ^ https://$host$request_uri? permanent;
}
