Rewrite rules for lithium framework
May 25, 2012 08:45AM
I would like to deploy lithium framework on nginx (with php-fpm), however I'm stuck transforming .htaccess rules to nginx.

Framework has following structure:

|-.htaccess (#1)
|-index.php (requires next index.php)
| |-.htacces (#2)
| |-index.php (just requires next index.php)
| |-webroot/
| | |-.htaccess (#3)
| | |-index.php (the one that finally handles requests)

.htaccess #1
RewriteRule ^$ app/webroot/ [L]
RewriteRule (.*) app/webroot/$1 [L]

.htaccess #2
RewriteRule ^$ webroot/ [L]
RewriteRule (.*) webroot/$1 [L]

.htaccess #3
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !favicon.ico$
RewriteRule ^ index.php [QSA,L]

Thus far I've created following rules:

location / {
rewrite ^$ /app/webroot/;
rewrite (.*) /app/webroot/$1;

location /app/ {
rewrite ^$ webroot/;
rewrite (.*) webroot/$1;

location /app/webroot/ {
index index.php;
try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php;
### OR ###
rewrite ^ index.php last;

But those are (completely?) wrong. Either application cannot access static files, all links become http://index.php/something or links get appended to current URL.
What am I doing wrong?

Please, can someone help me get on the right track.

Changed root to directory "webroot", so now I need less rules.

root /var/servers/my_app/app/webroot;
# previously it was
# root /var/server/my_app;

location / {
index index.php;
try_files $uri $uri/ index.php;
location ~ \.php {
fastcgi_pass unix:/tmp/php.socket;
fastcgi_index index.php;
include fastcgi_params;
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME /var/servers/my_app/$fastcgi_script_name;
fastcgi_param PATH_INFO $fastcgi_script_name;

This, however, still does not do the trick.
If I access / (root page), all the links has index.php
e.g. Instead of "www.example.com/test" there is link "www.example.com/index.php/test",
also resource links (js, css) are "/index.php/css/lithium.css" instead of "/css/lithium.css".

Interesting, that when I access www.example.com/test (via direct URL input), the page is displayed correctly - links become "./css/lithium.css" (yes, with a dot).

Thanks to people who pointed out wiki article http://lithify.me/docs/manual/configuration/servers/nginx.wiki

However provided configuration still doesn't resolve issue with "index.php" getting perpended to links.
