How can I rewrite following link in nginx?

http://www.example.com/filename/key.value/bar.foo

to

http://www.example.com/filename.php?key=value&bar=foo

Notice .php also, please!

This could be done with the rewrite directive using capture groups, assuming that there are a fixed number of key/value pairs. Dealing with an arbitrary number of key/value pairs would probably require the Lua module.

rewrite ^/([^/]+)/([^/.]+)\.([^/.]+)/([^/.]+)\.([^/.]+)$ /$1.php?$2=$3&$4=$5

Yes it is going to be an arbitrary number of key/value pairs. How about if you don't have to separate the key.value? You know take that as one variable. I can do the slit in the script. – RoboTamer Jun 10 '12 at 5:04
