User Guide


status writes a status code to the response. It does not write a response body.


status code path

If you have a lot of status rewrites to group, share a status code by making a table:

status code { path }

Each line describes a base path which should have that status code written.


For a catch-all status:

status 404 /

To hide the existence of a secret folder:

status 404 /secrets

To hide the existence of multiple folders:

status 404 { /hidden /secrets }
