LEMP on CentOS 6 returns 404 errors

February 28, 2014 4.5k views
I have created a CentOS 6.5 x64 droplet with LEMP installed as described here: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-linux-nginx-mysql-php-lemp-stack-on-centos-6 It is working fine, http://vps.eletter.gr/info.php. I have ported a sample CodeIgniter application (https://github.com/scoumbourdis/grocery-crud/archive/v1.4.1.zip) under http://vps.eletter.gr/gc141/ but when I try to click to any of the links it returns 404 error. I also tried to install FUEL CMS http://vps.eletter.gr/fuel/install but again it comes up with a 404 error where when on http://vps.eletter.gr/fuel works fine. Obviously it has to do with the nginx conf file but I have tried many options without luck! The /etc/nginx/conf.d/default.conf file is: server { listen 80; server_name vps.eletter.gr; location / { root /usr/share/nginx/html; index index.php index.html index.htm; } error_page 404 /404.html; location = /404.html { root /usr/share/nginx/html; } error_page 500 502 503 504 /50x.html; location = /50x.html { root /usr/share/nginx/html; } # pass the PHP scripts to FastCGI server # location ~ \.php$ { root /usr/share/nginx/html; fastcgi_pass unix:/tmp/php5-fpm.sock; fastcgi_index index.php; fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name; include fastcgi_params; } }

you should enable debug mode (development mode) in your php framework and see why that happens
Try adding try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php; after index index.php index.html index.htm; .
The framework is already on debug mode fatih. But it is not the framework that returns a 404 error, I think.
Kamal your suggestion returns a "No file is specified."
I could make it work and in the end I am rebuilding the droplet and I will install LAMP!
Correction: I couldn't...

Good, that means we're getting there :]

If you haven't wiped your droplet yet, can you pastebin the output of
tail -30 /var/log/nginx/error.log
It's gone!
I am installing LAMP along with varnish.
