Can someone tell me how I can redirect to in nginx without using the rewrite module/functionality?

Why wouldn't you want to use the rewrite module? That's what it's there for. – womble Jul 26 '11 at 5:07
I considered down-voting also, but then I realized they may not have access to the server's configuration (unlikely, but possible). – h0tw1r3 Jul 26 '11 at 5:27

In Nginx alone, impossible. Outside of Nginx, you could use an HTML page with a meta-redirect or use PHP to send a location header.

Ok. That's all I needed to know. Why did you down-vote my question? Who do you think you are? – Aco Jul 26 '11 at 6:49
I didn't down vote the question. Why didn't you accept the answer? – h0tw1r3 Jul 26 '11 at 7:02
