Reverse Proxy SubDirectory HELP
December 10, 2009 10:42PM
Hello everyone,

I am using Ngnix as a reverse proxy to load balance my apache application servers. I have followed the sample configuration files:

[quote]http {
upstream mycluster {

server {
listen 80;
server_name www.domain.com;
location / {
proxy_pass http://mycluster;

It works fantastic until I try to navigate to a subdirectory such as:


in which Nginx directs to


I have a sneaky suspicion that I need to do rewrites for all my sub directories but thought I would ask the community before I did such a thing...

Am I missing something?

what is exactly failing? are your backend servers expecting a certain HOST header value?

if so, maybe consider passing the correct host header to your backend servers.

proxy_set_header Host www.domain.com;
