Nginx always searches index.php in the wrong directory

May 06, 2016 03:22PM

I have a web root directory pointing to /var/www/html.

I have several subfolders in /var/www/html where I host different projects. Example: /var/www/html/chatserver

When I try to access http:// MYSERVER.net/chatserver I always have an error because Nginx tries to search for the index.php in the root web folder instead of the actual subfolder.

This is my default server:

server {
listen 80;
listen [::]:80;
server_name MYSERVER.net www.MYSERVER.net;
return 301 https://$host$request_uri;

server {
listen 443 ssl;
listen [::]:443 ssl;
server_name MYSERVER.net www.MYSERVER.net;

ssl_certificate /etc/letsencrypt/live/MYSERVER.net/fullchain.pem;
ssl_certificate_key /etc/letsencrypt/live/MYSERVER.net/privkey.pem;
ssl_trusted_certificate /etc/letsencrypt/live/MYSERVER.net/fullchain.pem;
ssl_protocols TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2;
ssl_prefer_server_ciphers on;
ssl_dhparam /etc/ssl/certs/dhparam.pem;
ssl_session_timeout 1d;
ssl_session_cache shared:SSL:50m;
ssl_stapling on;
ssl_stapling_verify on;
add_header Strict-Transport-Security max-age=15768000;


root /var/www/html;
index index.php index.html index.htm;

rewrite ^(.*\.php)(/)(.*)$ $1?file=/$3 last;

location / {
# try_files $uri $uri/ =404;
try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?q=$uri&$args;

location ^~ /.well-known/ {
allow all;

location ~ [^/]\.php(/|$) {
fastcgi_index index.php;
fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock;
include fastcgi_params;
fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+\.php)(/.+)$;
fastcgi_param PATH_INFO $fastcgi_path_info;
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;

Any help/ideas on how to solve this?
Thanks for reading!
