Re: RE: Redirect Question for Directory Structure Change

Thank you Reinis.

I really appreciate your help and your patience.
I am trying to learn this, so seeing what how it works is very useful.

To be clear, hopefully, I need all the (multiple) subdirectories of threedaystubble.com/e/ in existing inbound links to refer to the new structure threedaystubble.com/~

>p.s if there are multiple redirect locations (besides /e) an easy way is to group them together via map directive.

All the redirect locations are in /e/.
In fact the path to everything is the same except I removed the /e/.
So, maybe I don't need to use the map directive, right?

This didn't work:

location ~ ^/e/(.*) { return 310 $scheme://threedaystubble.com/$1; }

This seems to work:

<rewrite ^/e/(.*) /$1 permanent;

Thank you, now I want to understand it.
I read that using return was less processor intensive, so I was hoping that that one would have worked.

Somehow the rewrite seems wrong.
I expected the browser to show the new location, but when I see the address in the browser using the rewrite above it shows threedaystubble/e/~ even though the files are not really in that location.
I could have just as easily put the files in a /e/ as they were, but I don't like that structure for various reasons, hence the change.
The inbound links work, which is great, and if the new location is being propagated (i.e. new inbound links won't be created in the future that refer to /e/) then it's okay.

What do you think? Is what I want to do clear?

Thanks again.
