Help with URI strip_prefix / redirect

1. Caddy version (caddy version):


2. How I run Caddy:

Caddyfile is used

a. System environment:

AWS Linux 2 AMI

Not using Docker

b. Command:

caddy run

c. Service/unit/compose file:


d. My complete Caddyfile or JSON config:

appsite.local localhost {	

applink.local {

    redir https://appsite.local/app?token={uri} permanent


3. The problem I’m having:

I am trying to redirect clients coming in to one domain (similar to a URL shortener) to a different domain.

the pattern coming in is

applink.local/<token here>

the pattern coming out (redirect) I want is:

appsite.local/app?token=<token here>

at which I am failing miserably.

4. Error messages and/or full log output:

5. What I already tried:

I have tried

uri strip_prefix /

but this doesn’t seem to remove the leading /

6. Links to relevant resources:

Ah, I see. Thanks for filling out the template!

So since you want to only grab a segment of the path, you’ll want to use a path_regexp matcher to only capture the part of the path you care about (i.e. everything after /).

applink.local {
	@token path_regexp token ^/(.*)$
	redir @token https://appsite.local/app?token={re.token.1} permanent
