xenForo with nginx on Plesk 11.5

I can enter domain.com and receive the xenForo start page (I got the PLESK star page instead until I removed index.html from my root). However Friendly URLs are not working.
PHP:
location / {
  try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$uri&$args;
  index index.php index.html;
}


location/internal_data/ {
  internal;
}

location /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;
}

I have this on my test VPS to work with nginx

index index.php index.html index.htm;
try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$uri&$args;

nginx does not let me rewrite the / location, it tells me it is declaring this location already in its standard file (obviously). I installed nginx over the nginx web control panel. Hope the server management company can help me out there.

Should be something like:
Code:
location / {
  try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$uri&$args;
  index index.php index.html;
}


location /internal_data/ {
  internal;
}

location /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;
}
location<you omit space>/internal_data/ {
internal;
}

I get always something like this:
Invalid nginx configuration: nginx: [emerg] duplicate location "/" in /var/www/.../conf/vhost_nginx.conf:1 nginx: configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test failed

What's in #6 is all I put in the plesk administration box. Plesk is creating a file with its contents - sometimes. Sometimes the file is empty. This is the reply from my server management team:
nginx is already running on port 80 for all domains when I get to the server

The URL you linked was loading fine

If I try to put the code you gave into /var/www/vhosts/system../conf/vhost_nginx.conf it gives an error

nginx: [emerg] duplicate location "/" in /var/www/vhosts/system/.../conf/vhost_nginx.conf:1
nginx: configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test failed

So I took it back out

This is how it works on a Plesk server with 100% manually nginx configuration:

/etc/nginx/nginx.com
-> outcomment the inclusion lines:
# include /etc/nginx/conf.d/*.conf;

Then you can edit nginx.conf. Don't forget to "service nginx restart" after each edit.

Anyone using nginx on Plesk 11.5?

It is possible that there is no way to include a custom nginx.conf without workarounds:

Hi @Marcus sorry to say that plesk is a little dificul with nginx, i fight a days ago with a new server with plesk 11.5 and nginx with php-fpm, finally is working but with a manual edition of nginx files, last time that i order a server with plesk.
I post my configuration files if it helps you.

Code:
[daniel@srv01 ~]$ cat /etc/nginx/nginx.conf
