Hi Francis,

Hmm, I read on nginx website and elsewhere that if statement may not work
consistently within a location directive, and is generally discouraged.
Should I worry in this case?

>The above rewrite does that; but which html file should it look for here?
>/home/www/example/public/doc/one/two/two.html, or
>(As in: do you repeat everything after /public/doc, or do you repeat

I only want to repeat the final after-slash part, so any
'/public/doc/blahA/blahB' should only look for
'/public/doc/blahA/blahB/blahB.html'. Would that change anything in the
config proposed here?

Thanks again!
