SEO Friendly Urls

I’m attempting to use Nginx to server a CodeIgniter Script.

Code Igniter uses SEO Friendly scripts (AKA, only uses / instead of ?)

This works fine when I try and use it on Apache. Trying to setup my
own VPS with Code Igniter through NGINX only leans to a pain.

The server is setup with the base folder being a phpbb form, and a
codeigniter script in the folder /fg152/

I’m trying to get the nginx to recognize that index.php/login is
supposed to be a query for code igniter, not a file of its own.

I tried every configuration on this link.

My current Nginx conf looks like this.

            location /fg152/ {
                    root /home/sites/domain/fg152/;
                    index index.php;
                    try_files $uri $uri/ /fg152/index.php;

            }


            location / {
                    root /home/sites/domain/;
                    index index.php index.html index.htm;

                    fastcgi_index index.php;
                    }

Now. This lets the script work. Instead of giving 404 on
/fg152/index.php/login it shows the login page. EXCEPT the images do
not log. Huge problem there.

The images are located at /fg152/application/views/images/

And the login.php that its calling is located at
/fg152/application/controllers/

If I remove the location /fg152/ it will show up with the image files
again (But the rest gets a 404 error

I’ve tried using

location /fg152r/ {

    if (-f $request_filename) {
        expires max;
        break;
    }

    if (!-e $request_filename) {
        rewrite ^/fg152/(.*)$ /fg152/index.php/$1 last;
    }
}

Still no luck. What can I do to resolve this issue and get both php
and image files working?

The images are located at /fg152/application/views/images/

Try this instead:

            location /fg152 {
                     root /home/sites/domain;
                     index index.php;
                     try_files $uri $uri/ /fg152/index.php;
             }

Remember that the location is appended to the root, so your
configuration would lead to /home/sites/domain/fg152/fg152, which I
don’t think is what you intended.

Aha! That did it :slight_smile:

Thank you.

Actually, that fixed -most- of it. Butttt

FG152/index.php/cron/graburls/999182b003023a35c327db371a74a85f

Gives a 404 not found :frowning:

location ~ .php$ {

should be:

location ~ .php($|/) {

That just broke things.

It provides No input file specified. when accessing any index.php
links in the /fg152 folder. Including just going to /fg152/index.php

Try this instead:

location ~ .php {

Still giving the same thing :frowning:

Can you send your current config? In pastebin instead of email.

To expand on this.

/FG152/index.php/cron/graburls/999182b003023a35c327db371a74a85f

This link tells index.php to load cron.php which then run the graburls
command which uses the cronkey (Which is the lost aug)

This returns a 404 with the current config.

Does the /fg512/index.php work? The 404 comes from nginx or php?

http://pastebin.com/3uz4tCmd

Yes. The index.php does work. It also works with anything that doesn’t
need multiple inputs

Such as

index.php/log
index.php/keywords

etc

The error comes from nginx

404 Not Found

nginx/1.0.5

The error comes from nginx

What’s in error log?

Is it with location ~ .php or location ~.php$ ?

Right now its .php

It had the $ before and still gave the error.

Try reverting to .php$ and add one more location block:

location ~ .php/ {
return 503;
}

returns 503

2012/3/4 adam estes [email protected]:

returns 503

Remove the php/ block and change php$ to php (location ~ .php {)
