I'm using nginx and what I'd like to occur is the following: I'd like

http://localhost/path/place?query=1  -->  http://localhost:8080/place?query=1

My config is pretty simple and looks like:

location / {
    root /var/www/html;
location /path/ {
    rewrite   ^/path/(.*)$ $1 break;

However, when I click on an href="/path" link, I am sent back to the
index page. Why is it not proxying the rewritten URL back to the
instance on port 8080? How can I make it do that? Thanks for all your

I may be incorrect yet I think that the / location gets picked up and processed for /path before the /path/ one hence you're hitting your index page. So try reversing the order of the location statements with location / last.
