Re: redirecting many urls

Hi Willy, sure.

I guess what i'd be writing with my knowledge of haproxy at the moment is one of these for every user:-

acl user1 url_beg /user1/mypage
redirect location code 301 if user1

It would be great if I could do:
acl user1 url_reg /(.*)/mypage
redirect location\1/page code 301 if user1

Prefix doesn't work in this context as the thing I want to change is after the value i'm capturing.

I've tried to think about how I could do it with the reqrep and rsprep but i'm finding it hard to get my head round. Especially since I really wouldn't like the request to hit a server when I want to redirect them.

Any help appreciated.
