Returns a random file at a specific URL

Is it possible to configure nginx to a specific url with each request given a random single static file from a given set?

Watched, yeah. But in the repository without this nginx module is assembled.
May be using mod_rewrite? - Elroy.Wyman commented on October 8th 19 at 00:19
What prevents to rebuild? Get the recipe from the same repository and build on it. - Ignatius.Fadel34 commented on October 8th 19 at 00:22

And 'crutches' kind of do not want?
<?php header('Location: '.rand(1000000,9999999)); ?>
Indeed, in this case files and clients will remain static, with all the caching, etc.

I checked the browsers without problems open all the resources needed, regardless of how many redirects were made to obtain them.

It is better to recompile nginx for themselves, it's easy. When they solved this problem through random_index, and then finished in the module set_misc function set_random var min max; where to give a random file URL is much more convenient. By the way this is used to rotate the pre-stored static html blocks.
Now I think to change the rotation policy (because of the 5 blocks randomly often podrjada the same shows). Did the team set_rotate var from to; and sent a pull request to the developer of the module set_misc. Using this command makes an internal rotation of the units order, the value of the last block shown can be saved in Cookies

If ngnix assembled with it is possible for them.
The script is not difficult, if not obtained by means of nginx, and I will do) - Elroy.Wyman commented on October 8th 19 at 00:25
