How to install Magento 1.9.0.1 on Nginx

Hi, Does someone know where to find a good tutorial how to install magento 1.9.0.1 on Ubuntu 14.04 with LEMP?

My problem is that whatever I do I get a 404 when I try to install magento.

  1. I unpack magento to my www directory. 2. Give it correct permissions (755 for directories and 644 for files). 3. Hit my IP adress in the browser. 4. Gives me a 404.

I tried to create other files and place them in the same directory as magento install.php and they work just fine… for instance the info.php file with information about PHP works just fine. I follow this guide, but it’s from 2012, maybe it’s not up to date? http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/1_-_installation_and_configuration/configuring_nginx_for_magento

its really easy to install Magento on Apache, why so complicated on nginx? Maybe I’m just missing out something obvious here…
