I'm a web developer at Canonical.

I have a blog about web dev, politics and other things.

I'm interested in UX, client- and server-side development, code architecture and microformats.

I'm not a fan of intellectual property, and I love freedom of information and open-source.

comment nginx httpMapModule regex variables
@mgorven that's odd. Could you confirm this is definitely true? Maybe it changed between 1.1.19 and 1.2.7. In which case I was wrong to update the documentation: wiki.nginx.org/HttpMapModule#map

revised nginx httpMapModule regex variables
Make the answer more succinct and to the point - I tested it and it works so now it doesn't need the qualifiers.

comment nginx httpMapModule regex variables
Wonderful. That is the answer. How did you know that? Where would I find PCRE documentation that explains P variables? (I did search for it)

comment Compiling PHP with GD and libjpeg support
No your answer was right. I have two versions of libjpeg installed - yum's one in /usr/lib, and one I compiled from source in /usr/local/lib. It obviously didn't like the first. And I wouldn't have known how to make it look for the second properly without your answer.

comment Compiling PHP with GD and libjpeg support
This was the solution. I set --with-jpeg-dir=/usr/local/ and now it works! Please post this solution as an answer and I'll accept it.

Tried that. Didn't work. Similar my above comment, it said location of libjpeg... /usr but didn't lead to JPEG support.
