In this new post from Chris Hartjes today he continues his look at combining a CakePHP application with the Nginx web server. This time the focus is on the configuration of the web server side of things to make the CakePHP routing work.
Iâ€™m in the process of creating the website for my upcoming book *and* had recently switched back from using Apache to using Nginx again, so I thought it might be time to roll up my sleeves and figure out how to make it work in a subdirectory. After much gnashing of teeth and pissing and moaning, I figured it out.
A simple configuration example is included as a part of the post showing how to correctly configure the rewrite routes to catch everything and send it back to the index.php file. His is a two-part process: it tries to match anything with "/foo" in it then, if it wasn't caught there, it sends it off to be rerouted to the front controller.
