So I've started playing around with nginx and wow did it decrease the load on my VPS compared to Apache2. I've come across one problem I can't solve with it though.
I have two domains - foo.com and bar.com. I want all requests for bar.com to redirect permanently to foo.com. I've got the following in my nginx.conf, but when I try to hit bar.com nginx complains about too many redirects and doesn't load foo.com.
rewrite ^ http://www.bar.com$request_uri? permanent;
Am I missing a step somewhere?
