Ah yes, that helped. Thanks.

However, I found another issue which is somewhat confusing, and I can't figure
out what I'm doing wrong.

In /home/w/www.foo.com I have a link file to a wiki that resides in another
place in the directory structure. /home/w/www.foo.com/wiki points to ->
/usr/local/www/wiki like this:

root@www [/home/w/www.foo.com] ls -l
drwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel - 512B Jun 16 22:13 bar/
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel - 20B Jun 16 21:24 index.php
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel - 23B Jun 16 21:22 wiki@ -> /usr/local/www/wiki

Accessing http://www.foo.com/wiki in my browser should bring me to the front
page (index.php) on the wiki, and yes it does. It doesn't load any images or
css-files however.

I checked the logs, and found loads of entries like this one:

2009/06/17 19:30:06 [error] 38435#0: *52 open()
"/home/w/www.foo.com/lib/tpl/default/images/button-css.png" failed (2: No such
file or directory), client:, server: www.foo.com, request: "GET
/lib/tpl/default/images/button-css.png HTTP/1.1", host: "www.foo.com",
referrer: "http://www.foo.com/wiki/index.php"

It looks like it's looking for the files in the wrong place?

I tested the same wiki in a vanilla configuration of nginx, where I just set
www.foo.com as server_name etc, and there it works. The directory structure
is the same.
