Alias or Symlink help?

I want to create a link so /video will pull from somewhere other then
the document root.

I would just move this over, but this have dynamic files of multiple
gb that I need to load, so its easier to leave them there.

First I tired using alias

location /video/ {
alias /home/documents/;
}

location ~ ^/video/(.+.php)$ {
alias /home/documents/$1;
fastcgi_pass unix:/tmp/phpfpm.sock;
fastcgi_index index.php;
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $request_filename;

# From fastcgi_params
fastcgi_param  QUERY_STRING       $query_string;
fastcgi_param  REQUEST_METHOD     $request_method;
fastcgi_param  CONTENT_TYPE       $content_type;
fastcgi_param  CONTENT_LENGTH     $content_length;
fastcgi_param  SCRIPT_NAME        $fastcgi_script_name;
fastcgi_param  REQUEST_URI        $request_uri;
fastcgi_param  DOCUMENT_URI       $document_uri;
fastcgi_param  DOCUMENT_ROOT      /home/documents; # <-- Changed
fastcgi_param  SERVER_PROTOCOL    $server_protocol;
fastcgi_param  GATEWAY_INTERFACE  CGI/1.1;
fastcgi_param  SERVER_SOFTWARE    nginx/$nginx_version;
fastcgi_param  REMOTE_ADDR        $remote_addr;
fastcgi_param  REMOTE_PORT        $remote_port;
fastcgi_param  SERVER_ADDR        $server_addr;
fastcgi_param  SERVER_PORT        $server_port;
fastcgi_param  SERVER_NAME        $server_name;
fastcgi_param  REDIRECT_STATUS    200;

}

That only gives me a “No file specified” message when accessing php.

I then tried a sym link instead (Obviously removing those lines from
conf

ls -s /home/documents/ /home/sites/domain/basketballiq/video/

Html file will load properly, but php gives me a 502.

What do I do? :frowning:

Maybe
location /video/ {
root /home/documents/;
}

?

fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $request_filename;

From fastcgi_params

Try just including fastcgi_params. I never needed to change anything
in that file even when using alias.
