H folks!

I am completeley newbie to nginx

I have the following config

        # Forward request to /demo to tomcat.  This is for
         # the BigBlueButton api demos.
       location /demo {
           rewrite ^ /upvc;
           proxy_redirect     default;
           proxy_set_header   X-Forwarded-For   $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;

        # Allow 30M uploaded presentation document.
           client_max_body_size       30m;
           client_body_buffer_size    128k;

           proxy_connect_timeout      90;
           proxy_send_timeout         90;
           proxy_read_timeout         90;

           proxy_buffer_size          4k;
           proxy_buffers              4 32k;
           proxy_busy_buffers_size    64k;
           proxy_temp_file_write_size 64k;

           include    fastcgi_params;

location /upvc {
        alias  /var/lib/tomcat6/webapps/demo;
        index demo3.jsp;
        expires 1m;

Rewrite is working but nginx is not.  proxying to tomcat, because of that
returns the jsp file as a plain text file.

Please could you help me?

Thanks in advance!
