If you are deploying your application to a server that is running Nginx, you may use the following configuration rules as a starting point for configuring your web server, just replace /srv/www/example.com with path to your site directory.


Make sure to point root to "public" subfolder and not main folder where files are uploaded, otherwise site will not work properly.


server {
    listen 80 default_server;

    server_name example.com www.example.com;

    access_log /srv/www/example.com/logs/access.log;
    error_log /srv/www/example.com/logs/error.log;

    root /srv/www/example.com/public;
    index index.php index.html;

    # serve static files directly
    location ~* \.(jpg|jpeg|gif|css|png|js|ico|html)$ {
        access_log off;
        expires max;
        log_not_found off;

    # removes trailing slashes (prevents SEO duplicate content issues)
    if (!-d $request_filename)
        rewrite ^/(.+)/$ /$1 permanent;

    # enforce NO www
    if ($host ~* ^www\.(.*))
        set $host_without_www $1;
        rewrite ^/(.*)$ $scheme://$host_without_www/$1 permanent;

    # unless the request is for a valid file (image, js, css, etc.), send to bootstrap
    if (!-e $request_filename)
        rewrite ^/(.*)$ /index.php?/$1 last;

    location / {
        try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$query_string;

    location ~* \.php$ {
        try_files $uri = 404;
        fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+\.php)(/.+)$;
        fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock; # may also be:;
        fastcgi_index index.php;
        fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
        include fastcgi_params;

    location ~ /\.ht {
        deny all;
