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

I'm new to Nginx rewriting. I know this is basic, but I'm constanty hitting the internal redirect cap of 10 when trying to do this.

Basically, I want domain.com/abcd.png to be domain.com/?v=abcd.png. This should only happen to files only directly under /, not any subdirectories under it.

Would appreciate any help anyone can provide me, thanks.

Try something like this:

rewrite ^/([^/]+\.png) /?v=$1 permanent;
