Question

How do I add a Wordpress Install to "/blog" on my server when "/" serves a different app via NGINX?

I have a Django app served at “domain.com/” I want to serve a Wordpress install from “domain.com/blog” so that I can enable SSL for both.

All I ever get is a 404 not found on the “/blog” entry. My NGINX conf file is shown below.

server { listen 80; listen [::]:80; server_name domain.org www.domain.org; return 301 https://$server_name$request_uri; }

server {

# SSL configuration
listen 443 ssl http2;
listen [::]:443 ssl http2;
server_name www.domain.org domain.org;
include snippets/ssl-domain.org.conf;
include snippets/ssl-params.conf;

access_log /home/user/logs/nginx/nginx-access.log;
error_log  /home/user/logs/nginx/nginx-error.log;

client_max_body_size 4G;

root /home/user/app;

keepalive_timeout 5;

location = /favicon.ico { access_log off; log_not_found off; }

location /static {
    alias /home/user/app/static;
}


location /uploads {
    alias /home/user/uploads;
}

error_page 500 502 503 504 /500.html;
location = /500.html {
    alias /home/user/app/app/app/templates;
}

location / {
    include proxy_params;
    proxy_pass http://unix:/home/user/app/mosaic.sock;
}

location ~ /.well-known {
    allow all;
}

location /blog {
    try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php$is_args$args;
}

}

To round this out, I’m posting the solution for prosperity. Even though @hansen didn’t post the final solution, they were crucial to figuring this out.

server {
    listen 80;
    listen [::]:80;
    server_name domain.org www.domain.org;
    return 301 https://$server_name$request_uri;
}

server {

    # SSL configuration

    listen 443 ssl http2;
    listen [::]:443 ssl http2;
    server_name www.domain.org domain.org;
    include snippets/ssl-domain.org.conf;
    include snippets/ssl-params.conf;

    access_log /home/user/logs/nginx/nginx-access.log;
    error_log  /home/user/logs/nginx/nginx-error.log;

    client_max_body_size 4G;

    root /home/user;

    keepalive_timeout 5;

    location = /favicon.ico { access_log off; log_not_found off; }

    location /static {
        alias /home/user/app/static;
    }


    location /uploads {
        alias /home/user/uploads;
    }

    error_page 500 502 503 504 /500.html;
    location = /500.html {
        alias /home/user/app/app/app/templates;
    }

    location / {
        include proxy_params;
        proxy_pass http://unix:/home/user/app/app.sock;
    }

    location ~ /.well-known {
        allow all;
    }

    location ^~ /blog {

        index index.php index.html index.htm index.nginx-debian.html;
        try_files $uri $uri/ /blog/index.php$is_args$args;

        location ~ \.php$ {
            include snippets/fastcgi-php.conf;
            fastcgi_pass unix:/run/php/php7.0-fpm.sock;
        }
    }
}

@davemerwin Okay, let’s try this instead - I don’t have an active test box to play with right now:

    location /blog/ {
        alias /home/user/blog;
        index index.php index.html index.htm index.nginx-debian.html;
        try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php$is_args$args;

        location ~ \.php$ {
            include snippets/fastcgi-php.conf;
            fastcgi_pass unix:/run/php/php7.0-fpm.sock;
        }
    }

Hi @dave0ca67299bda3400d468baf

Try changing your bottom location block to this (I’m guessing php7.0-fpm is installed):

location ^~ /blog {
  try_files $uri $uri/ /blog/index.php$is_args$args;
}
location ~ \.php$ {
  include snippets/fastcgi-php.conf;
  fastcgi_pass unix:/run/php/php7.0-fpm.sock;
}
