nginx proxy_pass POST 404 errors

view story

http://serverfault.com – I have nginx proxying to an app server, with the following configuration: location /app/ { # send to app server without the /app qualifier rewrite /app/(.*)$ /$1 break; proxy_set_header Host $http_host; proxy_pass http://localhost:9001; proxy_redirect http://localhost:9001 http://localhost:9000; } Any request for /app goes to :9001, whereas the default site is hosted on :9000. GET requests work fine. But whenever I submit a POST request to /app/any/post/url it results in a 404 error. Hitting the url directly in the browser via GET /app/any/post (HowTos)
