Need help with page redirect on Nginx

Hi all,

I’m struggling with a redirect issue. I need to redirect a specific page to another due to naming changes.

www.example.com/blogs to www.example.com/blogs/all

Just need to set a permanent redirect for the above example. I’ve set this in default .conf file in many different ways but nothing works.

Tried rewrite, return, permanent ways in server block but didn’t help.

There is already a server block in .conf file that was added for http to https redirect. Not sure if there should be only one server block or something.

Created a redirects.conf file as well and tried but nothing works. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Hi,

I have the same problem as you. I’ve tried everything you did and everything I found online and no success. What could have been wrong?

Hi @saipradyz,

You need to set the rewrite of your page in your server block in the .conf file of the domain.

This is how a permanent redirect from a page to another one looks like

server {
# Permanent redirect to an individual page
rewrite ^/blogs http://www.example.com/blogs/all permanent;
}

Please note you need to have a separate configuration file for your domain -

/etc/nginx/sites-available/domain.com.conf
/etc/nginx/sites-enabled/domain.com.conf
