Nginx subdirectory css and js not wokring Laravel

Posted September 17, 2021 184 views

Am trying to setup multiple laravel projects on nginx server. now in /var/www/htm/ i have two projects demo and demo1

nginx default conf

server {
    listen 80 default_server;
    listen [::]:80 default_server;

    root /var/www/html;

    # Add index.php to the list if you are using PHP
    index index.php index.html index.htm index.nginx-debian.html;

    server_name _;

    location / {
        # First attempt to serve request as file, then
        # as directory, then fall back to displaying a 404.
        try_files $uri $uri/ =404;
    location /demo {

        alias /var/www/html/demo/public;

        try_files $uri $uri/ @nested;

               location ~ \.php$ {
                        include fastcgi_params;
                        fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $request_filename;
                        fastcgi_pass   unix:/run/php/php7.4-fpm.sock;


location @nested {
        rewrite /demo/(.*)$ /demo/index.php?/$1 last;

    # pass PHP scripts to FastCGI server
    location ~ \.php$ {
        include snippets/fastcgi-php.conf;
    #   # With php-fpm (or other unix sockets):
        fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php/php7.4-fpm.sock;
    #   # With php-cgi (or other tcp sockets):
    #   fastcgi_pass;

Now here when am trying to access myip/demo then there is no css. i.e <link rel=“stylesheet” href=“/css/demo.css”> this means nginx trying to find css and js files in root directory but files are available in demo directory. how can I solve this? thank you

The problem seems to be that your demo assets are stored at /demo/css/demo.css however you are loading them directly with /css/demo.css. What you could do @asset blade helper.

To do so, in your .env file you need to make sure that you have your ASSETURL`set correctly toyourip/demo`:


And then when you load your assets in your blade view, do not specify them directly with <link rel=“stylesheet” href=“/css/demo.css”> but instead use the @asset() helper function:

<link rel=“stylesheet” href=“@asset('css/demo.css')”>

The generated asset URL will be:

Hope that this helps.
