If you’ll visit http://hastebin.com/ and show us what you’ve setup for:

1). NGINX Configuration File (/etc/nginx/nginx.conf) 2). NGINX Domain Configuration File (/etc/nginx/sites-enabled/yourdomain.conf) 3). PHP-FPM Configuration File (/etc/php5/fpm/php-fpm.conf) 4). PHP-FPM Pool Configuration File (/etc/php5/fpm/pool.d/[poolname].conf)

That’ll at least get us started :-). Using those files, we can see if there’s something wrong/missing and help you get things working.

<form method="POST" action="contact.php">

</form>

I’m made aware that POST method is not allowed in static html with nginx but I’ve been searching for the right config all over the internet and none of the suggested solution work for me.

Can you help point me in the right direction? Appreciate it so much. Thanks ;)

Hi! Can you post the HTML source code of the contact form? Specifically the <form ...> line. What method is it using?
