Conditional Based on Domain Name in General Conf...

I have one very general block of configuration I include on all sites. But in the section that deals with rules for caching I would like to create a different setup for any domain or site name that begins with “dev.”

Is this possible in nginx, and would it have any impact on performance per request, or is it read once at start-up as I assume it is?

This is my cache block BTW.

# assets, media
location ~* \.(?:css(\.map)?|js(\.map)?|jpe?g|png|gif|ico|cur|heic|webp|tiff?|mp3|m4a|aac|ogg|midi?|wav|mp4|mov|webm|mpe?g|avi|ogv|flv|wmv)$ {
	expires 1y;
	access_log off;

So I would like that down to 1 sec or off if we are on any domain. Turning on the access logs would prob also be smart. So… a complete different rule set :)

… just to be clear, this was a question about nginx configuration specifically, if that wasn’t clear. Thanks! (can we not edit posts here?)
