Locations help NGINX find the right content to serve in response to a request. In this video, learn how to configure locations along with directives that configure NGINX to serve the right file quickly.
- [Instructor] Let's discuss how we can make…the configuration for our demo site more robust…by adding location directives.…Location directives allow us to extend our configuration…based on URI or a Uniform Resource Indicator…that makes up the request being processed by the server.…When we define a location, we use the location keyword,…an optional modifier and a required location definition.…Location directives are formatted as blocks…and are defined inside server blocks.…
They can also be nested inside other location blocks.…Inside the location block we can include other directives.…Specifically, we can include just about any directive…that can be defined inside a server block.…This makes locations very useful since we can configure…Nginx to process different requests in ways…similar to server blocks without having to create…additional servers.…When Nginx processes locations, it uses a series…of matches to determine the best one to use.…First considering exact matches, then locations with…prefixes and then locations with regular expressions.…
