Example Configuration
Directives
     index

The ngx_http_index_module module processes requests ending with the slash character (‘/’). Such requests can also be processed by the ngx_http_autoindex_module and ngx_http_random_index_module modules.

Example Configuration

location / {
    index index.$geo.html index.html;
}

Directives

Syntax: index file ...;
Default:
index index.html;
Context: http, server, location

Defines files that will be used as an index. The file name can contain variables. Files are checked in the specified order. The last element of the list can be a file with an absolute path. Example:

index index.$geo.html index.0.html /index.html;

It should be noted that using an index file causes an internal redirect, and the request can be processed in a different location. For example, with the following configuration:

location = / {
    index index.html;
}

location / {
    ...
}

a “/” request will actually be processed in the second location as “/index.html”.
