Nginx: Rewriting directory path to file

view story

http://serverfault.com – I'm a little new to Nginx here so bear with me - I want to rewrite a url like foo.bar.com/newfoo?limit=30 to foo.bar.com/newfoo.php?limit=30. Seems pretty simple to do it something like this rewrite ^([a-z]+)(.*)$ $1.php$2 last; The part that I am confused about is where to put it - I've tried my hand at a some location directives but I'm doing it wrong. Here's my existing virtual host config, where should I implement my rewrite? server { listen 80; listen [::]:80; server_name foo.bar.com; root /home/foo; index index.php index.html index.htm; location / { try_files $uri $uri (HowTos)
