I can not fix it, this is my actual setup,  i tried everything I found on google

		listen *:80;
                server_name  subdomain.domain.com;
                root /xx/xxx/xxxx/;
		index index.php index.html index.htm;	
	        #necessary if using a multi-site plugin
			server_name_in_redirect off;
	        #necessary if running Nginx behind a reverse-proxy
			port_in_redirect off;
		# This will reject all external requests for files with names beginning with . (dot).
		location ~ /\. {
			deny  all;

		#mod rewrite wordpress
	          rewrite ^.*/files/(.*) /wp-content/blogs.php?file=$1;
			  if (!-e $request_filename) {
				rewrite ^.+?(/wp-.*) $1 last;
				rewrite ^.+?(/.*\.php)$ $1 last;
				rewrite ^ /index.php last;

        #Proxy the PHP scripts to Apache listening on
        location ~ \.php$ {
			proxy_set_header Host $host;
			proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
			proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;				

server_name_in_redirect off; and port_in_redirect off; directives have not helped

The result is:

- All resquests loads index (blogs planet)
- Images of blogs generates 404.... 

I have analyzed this last a bit, and the problem is that for example:

http://subdomain.domain.com/userblog/files/2008/04/image.jpg == http://subdomain.domain.com/wp-content/blogs.php?file=2008/04/image.jpg

the result is -> 404 — File not found.

because do not select fine the id of the blog, id take it out of the database according to userblog, isn´t it? in that case '/userblog/' lost when apply the rewrite rule!!

http://subdomain.domain.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/ correct IdBlog is 2 to this userblog but always is 1 /files/2008/04/image.jpg

I'm going crazy, please help!
