Nginx Question

Posted April 23, 2014 2.9k views
I setup a VPS running the Ghost application using the pre-made offering. How can I setup Nginx to serve up a plain http directory for images and misc files that aren't part of the Ghost blog? Everything I do results in a Ghost 404 page not found error.

You could try setting up a PHP server with tasksel and create an image folder and serv files through there. Im not sure it would work though.
Edit it the file "/etc/nginx/conf.d/default.conf" and add a new location block so that it looks like:

server {
listen 80;
server_name ;

client_max_body_size 10M;

location / {
proxy_pass http://localhost:2368/;
proxy_set_header Host $host;
proxy_buffering off;

location /files {
root /var/www;

Then create a directory named "/var/www/files" Now any files that you put in that directory will be available at:
Thanks, that worked perfectly!
