Question

nginx proxy_pass doesn't work in wordpress admin and returns 404

i have a main domain that is exampel.net and a blog service to name wp-exampel.site.cloud i need to open blog with this url : exampel.net/blog so i did this in my nginx :

location ^~ /blog {

        rewrite /blog/(.*) /$1  break;
        proxy_http_version 1.1;
       proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
        proxy_request_buffering off; # Disable any internal request  bufferring.
        proxy_pass http://wp.lunato;
        server_name_in_redirect off;
     #   proxy_set_header Host $host:$server_port;

    }

it works fine when i open exampel.com/blog

but when i try to use admin of wordpress the /blog remove from url it’s ok when i open exampel.net/blog/wp-admin but /blog will remove when i open exampel.net/wp-admin/.edit.php or other pages in menu of wordpress admin

Hello,

If you would like the Wordpress installation to be accessible via exampel.net/blog/ you need to set your Wordpress site and home URLs to exampel.net/blog. That way your wp-admin menu would take you to the correct page.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby

I tried your solution, even though admin page is showing but login form is not working,

My Code

upstream blog{
    server wordpress:80;
}

upstream client{
    server frontend:8080;
}


server{
    listen 80;

    location / {
        proxy_pass http://client;
    }

# to enable hot reloading 
    location /sockjs-node {
        proxy_pass http://client;

        proxy_http_version 1.1;
        proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
        proxy_set_header Connection "Upgrade";
    }

    location ^~ /blog {

        rewrite /blog/(.*) /$1  break;
        proxy_http_version 1.1;
       proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
        proxy_request_buffering off; # Disable any internal request  bufferring.
        proxy_pass http://blog;
        server_name_in_redirect off;# I tried by commenting it out but nothing works
     #   proxy_set_header Host $host:$server_port;

    }
