I think I might have ran into something similar before.

Internally Nginx has 2 ways to deal with this directive :


Either you've never touched the internal uri (no internal redirects for
instance) and your outgoing uri is going to be exactly the same as the
incoming uri. Internally r->valid_unparsed_uri is set to 1.

Or your internal has been modified, and the outgoing uri used by proxy_pass
will be re-normalized.
The re-normalization process might turn up differences between incoming and
outgoing uri.

Another way to force Nginx to send out exactly what you want is to do
something like this :

    map '' $seed_uri {
        default $request_uri;


This way you're forcing what comes in to be exactly what comes out, but
this comes with a price and you won't be able to use internal redirection
and will have to modify the content of $seed_uri manually, using if and
regexps for instance.

Hope that helps,
