Serving wordpress from subdomain

My setup is nginx + php-fpm. I am running a web application on
domain.com
and I am serving a wordpress configuration from domain.com/blog.

The problem is that the web app is served from /var/www/domain/html/http
and
wordpress is located outside of the root directory:
/var/www/domain/html/blog
How can I serve the blog effectively? I did try to symlink /blog from
within
the root but I feel this is a bad solution.

Here is my configuration file:

server {
listen *:80;
listen 443 ssl;
server_name domain;
error_log /var/www/domain/logs/error_log warn;
ssl_certificate /etc/nginx/certs/domain.crt;
ssl_certificate_key /etc/nginx/certs/domain.key;
ssl_ciphers RC4:HIGH:!aNULL:!MD5:!kEDH;
ssl_protocols SSLv3 TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2;
ssl_prefer_server_ciphers on;
root /var/www/domain/html/http;
index index.php;
client_max_body_size 250m;

    location / {
            try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$args;
    }
    location /blog {
            root /var/www/domain/html;
            try_files $uri $uri/ /blog/index.php?q=$1;
    }
    location ~ \.php(/|$) {
            try_files $uri =404;
            include /etc/nginx/fastcgi_params;
            fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+\.php)(.*)$;
            fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME

$document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
fastcgi_param PATH_INFO $fastcgi_script_name;
fastcgi_param SERVER_NAME $http_host;
fastcgi_pass 127.0.0.1:9000;
}
location ~* ^.+.(ht|svn)$ {
deny all;
}

Static files location

    location ~*

^.+.(jpg|jpeg|gif|png|ico|css|zip|tgz|gz|rar|bz2|doc|xls|exe|pdf|ppt|txt|tar|mid|midi|wav|bmp|rtf|js)$

}

I have been wrestling with a similar problem - except mine is worse, in
that the applications running in a separate physical directory were php
applications which required $_SERVER[‘DOCUMENT_ROOT’] to point to the
actual physical directory for the real document root. I

             fastcgi_param PATH_INFO $fastcgi_script_name;
             fastcgi_param SERVER_NAME $http_host;
             fastcgi_pass 127.0.0.1:9000;

The problem here is that as nginx redirects to the second location block
when it can’t find the file with try_files and goes to /blog/index.php,
it changes root back to the default

The way I solved the problem is

 location = /blog {
     rewrite ^ /blog/ permanent;
 }

 location /blog/ {
     alias /home/alan/dev/blog/web/;
     index index.php;
 }

 location ~ ^/blog/(.*\.php)$ {
     alias /home/alan/dev/blog/web/$1;
     include php-apps.conf;
 }

and the include file (used becaise I have several similar apps in this
area and each one is treated the same)

     include fastcgi_params;
     fastcgi_param DOCUMENT_ROOT /home/alan/dev/test-base;
     fastcgi_index index.php;
     fastcgi_intercept_errors on;
     fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php5-fpm-alan.sock;

There is a problem - which I don’t really understand - that try_files
does not work with alias. so I am not using it in my sub location blocks

I do have

 location / {
     try_files $uri $uri/ =404;
 }

and with the whole thing in place I do get 404s when somebody attempts
to access a non existent page. I think in your situation, your location
path equals the final elements of the physical filesystem path, so you
could use root instead of alias and then include the try_files bits you
have.

Hi there,

For info: that’s not a subdomain. It’s frequently called “non-root” or
“sub directory”.

If you expand your search to include those terms, do you find the config
you are looking for?

If you don’t, can you provide:

  • the request you make
  • the response you get
  • the response you want

for some requests that don’t do what you want? It may make it clearer
which part is failing.
