Hello Francis. Thank you for your reply.

I have some servers where the `index.php` exists, and some where it does not exist. I have been using the approach you outlined above successfully where I know `index.php` exists (or not), I think my question could perhaps be worded: is there a `try_files` option where I can have $uri, then $uri/, then `index.php` and finally `=404` if all else fails.

This is how I understood it, thank you for confirming!

I know the file `index.php` exists in the `root`. Would using the two expanded variables in a log be sufficient to confirm Nginx can see it, or am I missing something?

Thanks again, I am grateful for your time and assistance.
