Is it possible to do an internal redirect to another url within nginx?
Say I access url "/u1" which is handled by an upstream server. I need to
be able to return a redirect to url "/u2" which is not a file but needs
to be sent back to the upstream server (possibly different from the
X-Accel-Redirect seems to be for cases when /u2 maps to a file.
No, X-Accel-Redirect just accepts uri and does internal redirect.
It has no knowledge of how /u2 will be handled - by static module,
proxy module, fastcgi or whatever.
Can any response headers sent by /u1 be transferred as request headers
when making the request to /u2 ?
Any upstream response headers are available as $upstream_http_*.
But they will be cleared as soon as upstream module in /u2 will
start working, so you have to save them somewhere at rewrite
