Ask About Framework-Nginx

Dear All,

Im a System Admin from Indonesia.
I have a little trouble with Engine-X (nginx).
My server can recognize PHP & FCGI well, but a trouble appear when I use
a FuseBox frame work in my server.
I assume that the troubles are here:
~ when server access a page like this:

Engine-X will parse that as folder (identified by slash (/)), but that
doesn’t really a folder. Those are a fuseBox parsing methode.
I run this application in Apache, and everything going well.

What should I do ?

This is my nginx.conf and config:

user detik users;
worker_processes 10;
pid /var/run/;
events {
worker_connections 1024;
http {
include /usr/local/nginx/conf/mime.types;
default_type application/octet-stream;
log_format main '$remote_addr - $remote_user [$time_local] ’
'"$request" $status $body_bytes_sent “$http_referer” ’
‘"$http_user_agent" “$http_x_forwarded_for”’;
sendfile on;
tcp_nopush on;
tcp_nodelay off;

  if (-f $request_filename) {

  # check for index.html for directory index
  # if its there on the filesystem then rewite

  # and then break to send it to the next config rules.
  if (-f $request_filename/index.html) {

  # Look for existence of PHP index file.

  if (-f $request_filename/index.php) {

Description: PHP-FastCgi start script from

Author: Alexey Kovyrin

Comments by: Geoffrey Grosenbach

This script is started once and receives PHP requests from Nginx for

all apps. The Nginx config passes the full path to the script being

requested, so

only one fastcgi runner is needed for all apps, virtual hosts, etc.

See also the init.d script for starting this on boot.

To install PHP, I had to also compile the following:



* with './configure --prefix=/usr/local


ABSOLUTE path to the PHP binary


tcp-port to bind on


IP to bind on


number of PHP children to spawn


number of request before php-process will be restarted


allowed environment variables sperated by spaces


if this script is run as root switch to the following user


################## no config below this line

if test x$PHP_FCGI_CHILDREN = x; then


if test x$UID = x0; then

EX="/bin/su -m -c “$PHPFCGI -q -b $FCGIADDR:$FCGIPORT” $USERID"

EX="/usr/local/bin/php -q -b detik"

echo $EX

copy the allowed environment variables


for i in $ALLOWED_ENV; do
E="$E $i=${!i}"

clean environment and set up a new one

nohup env - $E sh -c “$EX” &> /dev/null &

Thank you very much Mr. Sysoev, it’s nicely work!

Hi Igor,

We find that PATH_INFO becomes ORIG_PATH_INFO when read from the
environment by PHP.
Is there any way to keep it as PATH_INFO, so as to keep the PHP
software compatible with Apache?

Thanks very much,

This PHP issue. Looking in PHP sources, it seems that
cgi.fix_pathinfo=0 in php.ini should fix it.

That’s great Igor, that means we should be able to use it on earlier
versions of PHP.

Many thanks.

Hi - it seems this is a PHP issue, fixed in v5.2.4. Sorry for the noise!

Best wishes
