I was following this DO article: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/nginx-location-directive
And have these doubts regarding nginx conf files directives:
/sand user types
/f, then which location would be served, and why?
^~ /somepathprefix, and the visitor has typed
example.com/somethen would Nginx stop searching even at this partial match? If yes, then it’d stop at
/matching also? If so, then why that conf file should’ve any other location block at all? Because in any case,
/would be matched at all times, then why bother having any other locations?!!
sub.example.com/somepath/?user=anythen what exactly is $host and what exactly is $hostname in it?
