LEMP on Ubuntu : 404's everywhere

After following this tutorial I got a working server, I can display the info test page. However if I test my Silex project I encounter 404’s on all my routes (except the “/” route).

class HomeController implements ControllerProviderInterface {

    public function connect(Application $app) {
        $controllers = $app['controllers_factory'];

            ->get('/home/', array($this, 'overview'))

        $controllers->get('/', function(Application $app) {
            //return 'Test'; //Works
            return $app->redirect($app['url_generator']->generate('home.overview')); //Works

        return $controllers;

    public function overview(Application $app) {
        //return $app->redirect($app['url_generator']->generate('auth.register')); //Doesn't work
        return 'test'; //Doesn't work

For the code above, the base url (“/”) can show a “test” string or redirect to “/home” which is linked to the overview function. However everything I try in that overview function doesn’t work, I cannot return “test” or redirect to another url, both things that where working in the “/” route.

All of this code works local.

Error log doesn’t help very much.

The 404’s are they because of some bad configuration? Where to look/what to change?

Add the following line to your server block, replacing try_files if it already exits:
