How do I convert this .htaccess snip to Nginx?

I have this snip of .htaccess:

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} index\.php
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^id=([0-9]+)$
RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/u_pages/%1.php -f
RewriteRule .* u_pages/%1.php? [L]

Using an online converter I get this:

location / {
  if ($request_filename ~ index\.php){
    rewrite ^(.*)$ /u_pages/%1.php? break;

-Doesn’t work.

What I’m trying to do:

I have a bunch of plain .php documents in /u_pages – e.g. 123.php

I need these to have URLs like this:

The document NAME corresponds with the number after id=

Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you.

Hi @ ,

You can try the following redirect:

location ^~ /u_pages {
    return 301 /index.php%1.php;

Not really sure but it should work.

Or with rewrite, the query string is automatically appended unless a ? is added:

rewrite ^/u_pages/$ /index.php$1 permanent;
