Nginx rewrite url problem

#1
Hello,

I read the topic regard the Nginx rewrite url for Xenforo, I am trying it, but it seems doesn't work well for me. I already moved all my files and database to a new VPS, where I am testing the Xenforo forum modifying the file hosts on PC.

But for the forum, I don't see it correctly and I have only 404 Not Found pages.

Actually, I have Xenforo in a subdomain, called "forum".

Here are the two codes that I tried:

1 Code

Code:
server {
        listen *:80;


        server_name  forum.mysite.it ;

        root   /var/www/mysite.it/web/forum;
           
    location /forum/ {
    try_files $uri $uri/ /forum/index.php?$uri&$args;
    index index.php index.html;
}

    location /forum/internal_data/ {
    internal;
}
    location /forum/library/ {
       internal;
}

    location ~ \.php$ {
    try_files $uri =404;
    fastcgi_pass    127.0.0.1:9000;
    fastcgi_param   SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
    include         fastcgi_params;
}

        index index.html index.htm index.php index.cgi index.pl index.xhtml;
}
2 Code

Code:
server {
        listen *:80;


        server_name  forum.mysite.it ;

        root   /var/www/mysite.it/web/forum;

location /forum/ {
try_files $uri $uri/ /forum/index.php?$uri&$args;
}

location /forum/data/ {
allow 127.0.0.1;
deny all;
}

location /forum/internal_data/ {
allow 127.0.0.1;
deny all;
}

location /forum/library/ {
allow 127.0.0.1;
deny all;
}
location ~ \.php$ {
fastcgi_index index.php;
fastcgi_pass 127.0.0.1:9000;
include fastcgi.conf;
fastcgi_intercept_errors on;
fastcgi_ignore_client_abort on;
}
Can you help me to understand where is the error?

Thanks!

Hello Floren,

I saw your link but it's a basic guide on first configuration of Nginx for Xenforo; I already did it for other my sites, actually I am having only problems to set the correct rewrite url for Nginx. I tried that two codes (the second is your), but it doesn't work well.

In this section:

Code:
location /forum/ {
    try_files $uri $uri/ /forum/index.php?$uri&$args;
}
Change it to:

Code:
location / {
    try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$uri&$args;
}
Do the same for everywhere else you have /forum/ (except for the vhost root specification).

Hello,

I removed "forum" from the section, and now I receive the error "No input file specified" on all the pages of the forum.

Here is the actuale code:

Code:
server {
        listen *:80;


        server_name  forum.mysite.it ;

        root   /var/www/mysite.it/web/forum;
          
    location / {
    try_files            $uri $uri/ /index.php?$uri&$args;
}

    location /internal_data/ {
    internal;
}
    location /library/ {
       internal;
}

location ~ \.php$ {
    fastcgi_index            index.php;
    fastcgi_pass            127.0.0.1:9000;
    include                fastcgi.conf;
    fastcgi_intercept_errors    on;
    fastcgi_ignore_client_abort    on;
}


        index index.html index.htm index.php index.cgi index.pl index.xhtml;
}
