Starting nginx: [emerg]: directive "rewrite" is not terminated by ";"

Code:
Starting nginx: [emerg]: directive "rewrite" is not terminated by ";" in /usr/local/nginx/vhosts/www.site.com.conf:45


Even though the Nginx configuration file contains a rewrite rule which is terminated corectly (with
Code:
last;
), if a rule contains curly brackets {}, then those brackets finish the location directive in Nginx configuration prematurely, thus making Nginx complaining about line termination.

Example:
Code:
system {
                   listen  80;
...
                    location / {
...                                 
                                      rewrite ^/[a-z0-9_-]*-[a-z]{1}([0-9]+)(/(news)+)?(/(digest)+)?(/(short|long)+)?/([a-z0-9_]+)\.xml(\.gz)?$ /gymrss.php?$8=$1&$3&$5&$7&gzip=$9 last;
...                                 
                    }                                     
}

[hence the curly brackets in [a-z]{1}([0-9]+) ].

To avoid these situations, enclose the first part of the regular expression with double quotes like below:
Code:
rewrite "^/[a-z0-9_-]*-[a-z]{1}([0-9]+)(/(news)+)?(/(digest)+)?(/(short|long)+)?/([a-z0-9_]+)\.xml(\.gz)?$" /gymrss.php?$8=$1&$3&$5&$7&gzip=$9 last;
