Nginx Question

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.

Thanks, that worked perfectly!

Edit it the file “/etc/nginx/conf.d/default.conf” and add a new location block so that it looks like: <br> <br><pre> <br>server { <br> listen 80; <br> server_name ; <br> <br> client_max_body_size 10M; <br> <br> location / { <br> proxy_pass http://localhost:2368/; <br> proxy_set_header Host $host; <br> proxy_buffering off; <br> } <br> <br> location /files { <br> root /var/www; <br> } <br>} <br></pre> <br> <br>Then create a directory named “/var/www/files” Now any files that you put in that directory will be available at:

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.
