All my old content (which no longer exists) is in the path mysite.com/2007/*

How can I write a redirect in nginx to redirect any requests to 2007 back to the homepage?

At the moment they just display a 404.



You didn't provide your config, but basically you need to insert this line into your "location" config:

rewrite "^/2007/.+$" / break;
  • You should not, though, that this creates two URIs for your content, whereas if you use the permanent flag instead of break then you get a 301 redirect. May 6 '10 at 10:49
  • You're right, this would be better: rewrite "^/2007/.+$" / permanent; May 6 '10 at 12:31
