I've installd rocketchat on ubunru with nginx and like to redirect

https://chat.myserver.tdl/privacy-policy to /a/folder/outside/webroot/index.html

which redirection rule to apply in this usecase?

  • Is there just one file in /a/folder/outside/webroot or are there css/js files for index.html too? – Richard Smith Dec 29 '18 at 19:38

I suppose, you need to serve that index.html when you visit /privacy-policy? If so, use the alias directive:

location = /privacy-policy {
    alias /a/folder/outside/webroot/index.html;

By the way, if you really need a redirect:

location = /privacy-policy {
    return 301 /a/folder/outside/webroot/index.html;
