Move Redirect 301 from Apache to Nginx (RedirectMatch)

  • Posted October 8, 2014

Hi, i’ve alwayes used Apache and now in my new dropplet i switch to Nginx. After reading various tutorials, now i have my wordpress working fine. But i still have one doubt with a 301 redirection.

In my apache’s htaccess i have the line:

rewrite "^/([0-9]{4})/([0-9]{2})/([0-9]{2})/(.*)$" $4 permanent;

You would use it like this:

server {
    listen 80;
    server_name domain-name;
    # ...
    rewrite "^/([0-9]{4})/([0-9]{2})/([0-9]{2})/(.*)$" $4 permanent;
    # ...
