Trailing slashes on NGINX servers

Configuring NGINX is more complicated since WP Rocket does not have access to the configuration of a NGINX server; NGINX servers don't use .htaccess files, so, this type of server must be configured by a Sysadmin.

If you have access to the NGINX server configuration, you can use the next rules:

Force Trailing Slash

# Force Trailing Slash (less REST API calls and files)

if ($request_uri !~ "^/wp-json") {
        rewrite ^([^.]*[^/])$ $1/ permanent;
}

Remove Trailing Slash

# Remove Trailing Slash (less REST API calls and files)

if ($request_uri !~ "^/wp-json") {
        rewrite ^/(.*)/$ /$1 permanent;
}
