Hi guys.

Thanks for replying. I’m almost there now. Now I can access the
directory, but when I access the file I get 404 again, while the file
already exists on that directory. Is there anything I need to setup?

Thanks in advance

Okay done with it. :slight_smile: Instead of using the about configuration, I just
use wildcards for every static files as stated in the docs as such:

Code:

serve static files

location ~ ^/(images|javascript|js|css|flash|media|static)/  {
  root    /var/www/virtual/big.server.com/htdocs;
  expires 30d;
}
