Looking to convert the follow Apache rewrite rules over to Nginx. We are trying to get this to work on a subdirectory but can't seem to get the syntax down correctly.

RewriteRule ^([^//]+)/?(.{2})?/$ index.php?page=$1 [QSA,L]

RewriteRule ^([^//]+)/?(.*)?/index([0-9]*).ht(m?ml?)$ index.php?page=$1&rlVareables=$2&pg=$3 [QSA,L]

RewriteRule ^([^/][\w\-\_]+)(.+)-l?([0-9]+).ht(m|ml)$ index.php?page=$1&rlVareables=$2&listing_id=$3 [QSA,L]

RewriteRule ^((\w{2})/)?([\w-_]{3,})$ index.php?page=$3&lang=$2&account_request [QSA,L]

RewriteRule ^([^//]+)/?(^/*)?.ht(m?ml?)$ index.php?page=$1 [QSA,L]

RewriteRule ^([^//]+)/?(.*)?/?(.*)?(.ht(m?ml?)|/+)$ index.php?page=$1&rlVareables=$2 [QSA,L]
