htaccess to nginx rewrite rules
June 09, 2009 07:03AM
Hi,

I have this rewriting rules for a vbulletin forum link modul:
[code]
Options +FollowSymlinks
RewriteEngine On

#RewriteBase /links

RewriteRule ^([a-zA-Z_0-9\-]+)/robots\.txt$ robots.txt [QSA,L]
RewriteRule ^whatsnew/links/([0-9]+)/page([0-9]+).html$ browselinks.php?do=newlinks&cutoffdate=$1&page=$2 [QSA,L]
RewriteRule ^whatsnew/links/(([0-9]?|-)+/?)$ browselinks.php?do=newlinks&cutoffdate=$1 [QSA,L]
RewriteRule ^whatsnew/posts/([0-9]+)/page([0-9]+).html$ browselinks.php?do=newposts&cutoffdate=$1&page=$2 [QSA,L]
RewriteRule ^whatsnew/posts/(([0-9]?|-)+/?)$ browselinks.php?do=newposts&cutoffdate=$1 [QSA,L]
RewriteRule ^whatspopular/([a-zA-Z_0-9\-]+)/$ browselinks.php?do=poplinks&orderby=$1 [QSA,L]
RewriteRule ^members/([a-zA-Z_0-9\-]+)/page([0-9]+).html$ browselinks.php?do=member&userrewrite=$1&page=$2 [QSA,L]
RewriteRule ^members/(([a-zA-Z_0-9]|-)+/?)$ browselinks.php?do=member&userrewrite=$1 [QSA,L]
RewriteRule ^([a-zA-Z_0-9\-]+)/(([a-zA-Z0-9]|-)+)/?$ showlink.php?linkrewrite=$2&catrewrite=$1 [QSA,L]
RewriteRule ^([a-zA-Z_0-9\-]+)/([a-zA-Z0-9\-]+)/page([0-9]+).html$ showlink.php?linkrewrite=$2&catrewrite=$1&page=$3 [QSA,L]
RewriteRule ^([a-zA-Z_0-9\-]+)/page([0-9]+).html$ browselinks.php?catrewrite=$1&page=$2 [QSA,L]
RewriteRule ^([a-zA-Z_0-9\-]+)/?$ browselinks.php?catrewrite=$1 [QSA,L]
[/code]


I read all the nginx docs about rewriting and made the followings:
[code]
location /links {
rewrite ^([a-zA-Z_0-9\-]+)/robots\.txt$ /links/robots.txt break;
rewrite ^/links/whatsnew/links/([0-9]+)/page([0-9]+)\.html$ /links/browselinks.php?do=newlinks&cutoffdate=$1&page=$2 break;
rewrite ^/links/whatsnew/links/(([0-9]?|-)+/?)$ /links/browselinks.php?do=newlinks&cutoffdate=$1 break;
rewrite ^/links/whatsnew/posts/([0-9]+)/page([0-9]+)\.html$ /links/browselinks.php?do=newposts&cutoffdate=$1&page=$2 break;
rewrite ^/links/whatsnew/posts/(([0-9]?|-)+/?)$ /links/browselinks.php?do=newposts&cutoffdate=$1 break;
rewrite ^/links/whatspopular/([a-zA-Z_0-9\-]+)/$ /links/browselinks.php?do=poplinks&orderby=$1 break;
rewrite ^/links/members/([a-zA-Z_0-9\-]+)/page([0-9]+)\.html$ /links/browselinks.php?do=member&userrewrite=$1&page=$2 break;
rewrite ^/links/members/(([a-zA-Z_0-9]|-)+/?)$ /links/browselinks.php?do=member&userrewrite=$1 break;
rewrite ^/links/([a-zA-Z_0-9\-]+)/(([a-zA-Z0-9]|-)+)/?$ /links/showlink.php?linkrewrite=$2&catrewrite=$1 break;
rewrite ^/links/([a-zA-Z_0-9\-]+)/([a-zA-Z0-9\-]+)/page([0-9]+).html$ /links/showlink.php?linkrewrite=$2&catrewrite=$1&page=$3 break;
rewrite ^/links/([a-zA-Z_0-9\-]+)/page([0-9]+)\.html$ /links/browselinks.php?catrewrite=$1&page=$2 break;
rewrite ^/links/([a-zA-Z_0-9\-]+)/?$ /links/browselinks.php?catrewrite=$1 break;
}
[/code]

but it does not work :(
what could be the problem?

Try using "last" instead of "break" in those rules.

Thanks I will try. But if a match found there is no need to continue checking the rules, is it?
Anyway from the logic point of view are my rules correct?

There are some other rules in the server section, but as I see it won't conflict with my rules. I am really stucked :(
Here is the complete stanza (servername edited to xxxxxx because I am not the owner and need to protect privacy, sorry):
[code]
server {

listen 80;

server_name forum.xxxxxx.info chat.forum.xxxxxx.info forum-new.xxxxxx.info;



root /var/www/www/vbulletin;

index index.php index.html;



error_page 404 /errors/404.html;







rewrite ^/((urllist|sitemap_).*\.(xml|txt)(\.gz)?)$ /vbseo_sitemap/vbseo_getsitemap.php?sitemap=$1 break;



if ($request_filename ~ "\.php$" ) {

rewrite ^/(.*)$ /vbseo.php?vbseourl=$1 break;

}



if (!-e $request_filename) {

rewrite ^/(.*)$ /vbseo.php?vbseourl=$1 break;

}



location ~ .svn {

deny all;

}



location ~ \.php(/|$) {

if ($uri ~ ^/images/) {

return 404;

}

include fastcgi_params.jedi;

}



location = /clear.gif {

empty_gif;

expires max;

}



location ~* \.flv$ {

flv;

}



location = /xxx-nginx-status {

stub_status on;

}



location ~ ^/(archive|attachments|ww|cpstyles|customavatars|customprofilepics|fonts|highslide|imgcache|season|signaturepics|galerie|traduction|errors)/ {

expires 1d;

}



location ~ ^/(clientscript|images)/ {

expires 1h;

}



location /events {

expires 5s;

}



location ~* ^/(css|swf)/ {

}



location /imgcache {

}



location /attachments {

}



location /customavatars {

The rewrites appear to be. Try using "last" in the vBSEO rewrites as well.

Thanks, I changed them to 'last'. Waiting for the owner to test it...
