Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I would like to rewrite requests to (.*).server.org to go to www.server.org/do/$1

Basically any request that comes in as: something.server.org should go to www.server.org/do/something

I would also like the ability to do something a little bit more clever: something1.something2.server.org should go to www.server.org/do/something1/something2/

so something like: (.).(.).server.org should go to www.server.org/do/$1/$2

Would anyone have some knowledge they can drop on me as to how to set this up with nginx?

thanks, Benny

Make sure your Nginx and PCRE version is up to date and then use server_name captures: http://nginx.org/en/docs/http/server_names.html#regex_names
