Bash script with cat and $1
I am writing a script which, among other things, generates Nginx configuration. Unfortunately, I ran into a problem. In Nginx config, I need to type
$1. I use the following method for this:
cat > /etc/nginx/sites-available/website <<EOL ... rewrite ^/api/?(.*)$ /web/api.php?url=$1 last; ... EOL
This makes the output file look like this:
... rewrite ^/api/?(.*)$ /web/api.php?url= last; ...
How do I make cat not interpret
$1 as a parameter?
