I need to create redirects for URLs where the html file name had spaces in it.

I need the nginx equivalent to this:

Redirect 301 "/Poorly Titled File.html" http://domain.com/new-url/

I have tried:

rewrite ^/Old\%20Page\%20Title.html$ $scheme://domain.com/new-url/ permanent;

location /Old\%20Page\%20Title.html{
return 301 $scheme://domain.com/new-url/;

with and without escaping the %'s.


Use ' around the location:

location '/Old Page Title.html' {
    return 301 $scheme://domain.com/new-url/;

Also see SO question Nginx rewrite that includes a blank spce.
