problem moving to nginx
July 20, 2016 12:36AM
Hi all , just getting my head around Nginx

i have just moved some pages from a apachi hosted server onto my nginx install

one page contains the php code

<div id="sectionB">
<object data="<?echo $row->doc;?>"
type="application/pdf"
width="100%"
height="100%">
</object>
</div>

in the apachi server this would open a frame and display the pdf file for which the URL was in $row (offsite url if thats significant)

in nginx .... nothing , no content, no frame , nada

do i maby need some lines in sites-availiable or something?

Thanks for any light anyone can shed on possible reasons :)

hi again : just refining the problem a bit

Nginx is serving the pdf's fine if they are in there in the folder
<object data="foo.pdf"
type="application/pdf"

but refuses to do this
<object data="http//:somevalidoffsiteurl.com/foo.pdf"
type="application/pdf"

so howcome?
the code worked fine on the apachi server and everything else works good
there are no relevant errors in server-errors.log

Thanks

There must be something in the nginx logs or php logs, sounds like a nginx root setting or php root/base setting.

Enable debug error logging and nginx will tell you exactly which request matches what location and what it returns from that.
