Newb Question for NGINX.conf

So I need to add the following code to the Nginx configuration file

# START Nginx Rewrites for Rank Math Sitemaps
 rewrite ^/sitemap_index.xml$ /index.php?sitemap=1 last;
 rewrite ^/([^/]+?)-sitemap([0-9]+)?.xml$ /index.php?sitemap=$1&sitemap_n=$2 last;
 # END Nginx Rewrites for Rank Math Sitemaps

I first made /home/{myuser}/nginx/{mysite}

I then went in a made a sitemap.conf with the following code above. Would I need to go into my nginx.conf file and call it in like

http { include /home/myuser/nginx/mysite/sitemap.conf

OR did I do this incorrectly from the getgo?

Hi there,

In theory, the way you did it should be fine. However, I would personally store all Nginx configuration files in the /etc/nginx folder.

Also if you need to make the change only for one specific domain name, you could add the rewrite rules directly in the server block for that domain, so this would be at:

/etc/nginx/sites-enabled/domain

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
