Nginx Rewrite rule

I want to convert apache .htaccess to nginx for my website.

Apache Htaccess- ( Below htaccess is in my manager folder of apache document root )

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME}.php -f
RewriteRule ^(.*?)/?$ $1.php [L]

Nginx ( Below is what I have written but its not working )

location /manager {
        if (!-d $request_filename){
        set $rule_0 1$rule_0;
        }
        if (-e $request_filename.php){
        set $rule_0 2$rule_0;
        }
        if ($rule_0 = "21"){
        rewrite ^(.*?)/?$ $1.php last;
        }

Please suggest.

nginx actually prefers you to use "try_files" for the first 2 apparently:

location / {
  try_files $uri $uri/ $uri/index.php$args;
}

location = /manager {
  rewrite ^/(.*?)/?$ /$1.php last;
}

Did you try it this way?
