Configuring nginx

Can I copy and paste the info into this file as it or change the values individually.

Can someone take me through exactly what I do here:

Add index.php to the index line.

Change the server_name from local host to your domain name or IP address (replace the in the configuration)

Change the correct lines in “location ~ .php$ {“ section

This was the message:Restarting nginx: nginx: [emerg] unexpected end of file, expecting “}” in /etc/n ginx/sites-enabled/default:121 <br>

I got this message when I restarted nginx: configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test failed <br>

It depends on what you have processing your PHP code in our case we have a writeup on getting a LEMP stack up and running using php5-fpm to process PHP. <br> <br>You can find the full writeup here: <br> <br> <br>The nginx config file would be setup as follows in that case: <br> <br>server { <br> listen 80; <br>
<br> <br> root /usr/share/nginx/www; <br> index index.php index.html index.htm; <br> <br> server_name; <br> <br> location / { <br> try_files $uri $uri/ /index.html; <br> } <br> <br> error_page 404 /404.html; <br> <br> error_page 500 502 503 504 /50x.html; <br> location = /50x.html { <br> root /usr/share/nginx/www; <br> } <br> <br> # pass the PHP scripts to FastCGI server listening on <br> location ~ .php$ { <br> #fastcgi_pass; <br> # With php5-fpm: <br> fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock; <br> fastcgi_index index.php; <br> include fastcgi_params; <br>
<br> } <br> <br>} <br>
