    spenceteeth got a reaction from CA3LE in Upload worsens, download stays the same- why?   
    Possible your ISP and test server for Dallas are one in the same.
    I run speed tests out of boredom I have seen all kinds of weird things across national and international tests. I wouldn't be concerned

    This is so weird!
    Here's the rules I'm testing.
    RewriteRule ^statstest/tekwav$ /tools/database/db_search.php?type=user_name&q=tekwav [L,QSA] RewriteRule ^statstest/tekwav.$ /tools/database/db_search.php?type=user_name&q=tekwav [L,QSA] RewriteRule ^statstest/.tekwav$ /tools/database/db_search.php?type=user_name&q=tekwav [L,QSA] RewriteRule ^statstest/.tekwav.$ /tools/database/db_search.php?type=user_name&q=tekwav [L,QSA]  
    So they are all pointing the the same destination.
    https://testmy.net/statstest/tekwav -- 404 not found https://testmy.net/statstest/tekwav. -- 200 works https://testmy.net/statstest/.tekwav -- 404 not found https://testmy.net/statstest/.tekwav. -- 200 works  
    They should all work.
    I went directly to the server IP and had the same result, so it's definitely not cloudflare.
    lol... I think it's because your username ends in wav ... like a wav file.  This probably boils down to a poorly written expression in nginx additional directives.
    Here's why I have this theory.
    RewriteRule ^statstest/.ekwav$ /tools/database/db_search.php?type=user_name&q=tekwav [L,QSA] -- 404 not found RewriteRule ^statstest/t.kwav$ /tools/database/db_search.php?type=user_name&q=tekwav [L,QSA] -- 404 not found RewriteRule ^statstest/te.wav$ /tools/database/db_search.php?type=user_name&q=tekwav [L,QSA] -- 404 not found RewriteRule ^statstest/tek.av$ /tools/database/db_search.php?type=user_name&q=tekwav [L,QSA] -- 200 works RewriteRule ^statstest/tekw.v$ /tools/database/db_search.php?type=user_name&q=tekwav [L,QSA] -- 200 works RewriteRule ^statstest/tekwa.$ /tools/database/db_search.php?type=user_name&q=tekwav [L,QSA] -- 200 works  
    results in
    https://testmy.net/statstest/.ekwav -- 404 not found https://testmy.net/statstest/t.kwav -- 404 not found https://testmy.net/statstest/te.wav -- 404 not found https://testmy.net/statstest/tek.av -- 200 works https://testmy.net/statstest/tekw.v -- 200 works https://testmy.net/statstest/tekwa. -- 200 works  
    As I iterate through, as soon as the URL it no longer ends in "wav" it works.
    Now the rule is supposed to be looking for .wav not wav
    Here's the culprit.  In nginx additional directives.
    location ~* .(js|jpg|jpeg|gif|css|tgz|gz|rar|bz2|doc|pdf|ppt|tar|wav|bmp|rtf|swf|ico|flv|txt|woff|woff2|svg|json)$ { etag on; if_modified_since exact; add_header Pragma "public"; add_header Cache-Control "max-age=31536000, public"; }  
    To further test the theory that this is the culprit I add additional test rules to my .htaccess (mod_rewrite)
    We'll pretend a new member has a name ending in doc and tgz -- then test with one character blocking the pattern I suspect is being detected.
    RewriteRule ^statstest/tekdoc$ /tools/database/db_search.php?type=user_name&q=tekwav [L,QSA] RewriteRule ^statstest/tekdo.$ /tools/database/db_search.php?type=user_name&q=tekwav [L,QSA] RewriteRule ^statstest/tektgz$ /tools/database/db_search.php?type=user_name&q=tekwav [L,QSA] RewriteRule ^statstest/tektg.$ /tools/database/db_search.php?type=user_name&q=tekwav [L,QSA]  
    https://testmy.net/statstest/tekdoc -- 404 not found https://testmy.net/statstest/tekdo. -- 200 works https://testmy.net/statstest/tektgz -- 404 not found https://testmy.net/statstest/tektg. -- 200 works  
    Still, I don't see a mistake in how that nginx directive is written.  That should only capture if it has a preceding period.  I'll have to think about this.  Obviously I can just remove that rule and it will work but I have it there for a reason. 
    Maybe I simply need to remove the leading period and then add it to each.  Like this... (update: nevermind, same result)
    Yup, without that nginx directive it works.  I'll try to understand why it's not working as expected and rewrite that directive and post it here for other webmasters.
