So, my root is /var/www/domain.com/html/ninja/public and can be accessed by http://ninja.domain.com The root is set as such in the file located at /etc/NGINX/sites-available/domain.com I’m using Debian, NGINX, PHP7.0-FPM and MariaDB. My problem is that everytime I want to reach http://ninja.domain.com (or if I browse http://ninja.domain.com/index.php), it rewrite the adress bar to show http://ninja.domain.com/setup (or http://ninja.domain.com/index.php/setup) which result in an error 404 page not found. Is there any guru here that could help me or point what I should look into? I think I’m close to make it work but needs to get over that issue. Thanks!

If i browse http://ninja.domain.com the address bar get changed to http://ninja.domain.com/setup and it returns error 404. Thanks for helping me! February 5, 2018 at 7:34 pm #11821 Hillel CorenKeymaster Is mod rewrite enabled? February 5, 2018 at 7:52 pm #11822 kebel87Participant Thanks Hillel, by insisting on mod_rewrite, you had me understand that NGINX doesn’t follow .htaccess. I had to add ” try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$args; ” in the domain.com config file under server ninja.domain.com location.
