Ah, I had an brief inkling of that thought last night.
So I'd have my PHP cache code create different dirs and index files so
/galleries/1 => /galleries/1/index.html
/galleries/1/27 => /galleries/1/27/index.html
/galleries/1/27/8 => /galleries/1/27/8/index.html
Since /galleries is actually a FILE in the root, not a directory, could
I create a cache dir with a galleries dir elsewhere and say something
if (-f /cache/$request_filename/index.html)
rewrite ^(.*)$ /cache/$1/index.html break;
[No idea if that's the right way to do the syntax]
Also...is there any magic I'd need to do if someone added a trailing
slash so the "if" wouldn't be looking for:
/galleries/1/27/ => /galleries/1/27//index.html
Thanks for helping me think this through!
