    Hello Community,

    I'd like to achieve something as follow using nginx -

    When browsing to http://myserver/ for example,
    I want proxy_pass to be set to;

    What is the proper way to catch this and paste this to proxy_pass?

    Thank you
    Your answers are much appreciated,

    Well, im getting somewhere but still need help,

    Catching the argument this way -
    In nginx config -
    set $ip $arg_device;
    proxy_pass  http://$ip;
    Which actually works but breaks when there's an image/css/js, for example -
    [09/Mar/2014:23:05:44 +0200] "GET /?device= HTTP/1.1" 200 689 "-" "Mozilla/4.0 ...
    [09/Mar/2014:22:58:30 +0200] "GET /welcome.png HTTP/1.1" 500 594 "http://server/?device=" "Mozilla/4.0 ... 
    When I try to access http://server/?device= - It works.

    What would be the easiest way to solve this so css,js,images will be called as:
    GET /?device=
    and not just
    GET /welcome.png
