Override /usr/local/html?

Override /usr/local/html?
June 02, 2009 07:16PM

I'm new to nginx, and so far, I'm quite impressed. Great work!

I have a question: is there a way to override the default location of [b]/usr/local/html[/b] for the installation of the sample startup site? I can't find any configure directives that control this. Also, it appears that [b]/usr/local/html[/b] is hard-coded into [b]objs/Makefile[/b], but perhaps that file gets auto-generated somehow ... ???

I'm willing to change [b]objs/Makefile[/b] by hand if necessary, but I'm hoping that there is a way to alter this pathname using the standard configuration system.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I believe the *default* location is /usr/local/nginx/html but if you use the option "--prefix=PATH" that will set it to whatever you like.

If you like the default layout and only want to change the location of the default server, do that in the root directive in nginx.conf:

server {
listen 80;
server_name myserver.com;

location / {
root /path/to/your/html;
index index.html index.htm;
