Hello zaheer, if you are new to WordPress + Nginx, you may want to check this:


It gives you the basics. Also, check the additional links and resources section, particularly the “Hardening WordPress” article, which is not particularly focused on Nginx but provides important information on securing your WordPress setup.

Hope it helps.
