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

I have a rails app running on nginx and passenger. I want to proxy all the requests comming on the url /cometchat to the apache server running on port 81.

So all requests /cometchat /cometchat/xyz /cometchat/xyz/abc/1.html

etc should go to the apache server on port 80.

Is have tried the following

location ^~ /cometchat/ { proxy_pass http://127.0.0.1:81; }

this works only when the request is /cometchat/ but doesnot work when it is /cometchat/index.html

and

location ~ ^/cometchat/(.*)$ { #alias /home/website/files/$1; proxy_pass http://127.0.0.1:81; }

both do not work.

Please suggest the correct one.

Is it the only location in your nginx config? –  Alex Feb 8 '11 at 20:03
