Phpbb problems

I am having some problems with phpbb loading the style sheets for the
admin
area, and also the URLs look strange which could be related. I am using
an
nginx server config I pulled off the web which is suppossed to be
equivalent
of the Apache httpd rewrite rules, but they don’t seem to be enough.

server {
server_name forumobfuscated.onion;
root /var/www/sites/obfuscated_forum;
access_log /home/obfuse/access_log;
error_log /home/obfuse/error_log;
index index.php index.html index.htm;

    location ~

/(config.php|common.php|cache|files|images/avatars/upload|includes|store)
{
deny all;
return 403;
}

    location ~* \.(gif|jpeg|jpg|png|css)$ {
            expires   30d;
    }

    location ~ \.php$ {
            fastcgi_pass 127.0.0.1:9002;
            fastcgi_index index.php;
            fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME

/var/www/sites/obfuscated_forum$fastcgi_script_name;
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 PATH_INFO $fastcgi_script_name;
fastcgi_read_timeout 360;

           include        fastcgi_params;
    }

}

That is what I am using, URLs appear strange.

This is what a link to the admin area looks like:
http://obfuscatedforum.onion/adm/index.php/index.php?sid=e74213251b1867be1ca25ba667c4cb6b

It does load and I can use the pages but the CSS stylesheet isn’t coming
through, nor are the images. It would be good if phpbb was mentioned in
the
nginx wiki like drupal and other sites.

Hi there,

Can you identify the exact urls of the style sheets that do not respond
the way you want?

Can you tell where the strange-looking URLs come from – nginx config
or phpbb config or something else?

    root /var/www/sites/obfuscated_forum;
    location ~

/(config.php|common.php|cache|files|images/avatars/upload|includes|store)
{
deny all;
return 403;
}

So, if the url includes any of those strings, it is denied.

    location ~* \.(gif|jpeg|jpg|png|css)$ {
            expires   30d;
    }

If the url ends in one of those strings, it should be served directly
from /var/www/sites/obfuscated_forum.

Does that include your style sheet url?

Is the matching file present?

    location ~ \.php$ {
            fastcgi_pass 127.0.0.1:9002;
            fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME

/var/www/sites/obfuscated_forum$fastcgi_script_name;

    }

If the url ends in .php, it gets sent to the fastcgi server.

This is what a link to the admin area looks like:

http://obfuscatedforum.onion/adm/index.php/index.php?sid=e74213251b1867be1ca25ba667c4cb6b

The repeated /index.php looks odd. Did you type that? Or did something
link to it?

It does load and I can use the pages but the CSS stylesheet isn’t coming
through, nor are the images.

What do the nginx log files say about the CSS stylesheet and images
requests?

It would be good if phpbb was mentioned in the
nginx wiki like drupal and other sites.

http://wiki.nginx.org/Configuration links to a suggested config file for
phpBB3.

It is not identical to what you have here.
