    OK, so I have no idea what I am doing wrong as this is heavily documented. Everything I try however, is not working...

    This is where I am at right now:

    http://www.bestgaminghosts.com << all it does is download the 404 page...odd right?

    I got the files for the forums right on the root of the directory. I am using NGINX with the following rules:
    server {
            listen; ## listen for ipv4; this line is default and implied
            root /srv/www/bestgaminghosts.com;
            server_name bestgaminghosts.com www.bestgaminghosts.com;
    location / {
            try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$uri&$args;
            index index.php index.html;
    location ~ \.php$ {
                    try_files $uri /index.php
                    # NOTE: You should have "cgi.fix_pathinfo = 0;" in php.ini
                    fastcgi_index index.php;
                    include fastcgi_params;
    Can you let me know what I am doing wrong as I seriously cannot figure this out.

    The PHP code is showing when I try to load your URL. That means PHP is not working or is not installed. Be sure to setup PHP on your server.

    @jake, I have other websites on that same server running just fine via php. Sorry I forgot to include that detail.

    Assuming you're using php-fpm for the other sites as well, check your permissions. Can the php-fpm user run and execute on those folders?
