Nginx & Wordpress issues


I’m having a hard time with nginx & wordpress. Specifically I installed/configured WP on and all seems to be ok EXCEPT for the fact that in the wp-admin/ I can’t see: Media, Posts return an “Invalid post type”, there are no Pages (but in fact I have 2: Contact and About).

Also, i would like to redirect to but i’ve got no idea how to make this work without any problems in nginx.

Thank you in advance for helping out! Regards, Alex

From what I’ve read elsewhere, this error “Invalid post type” can be caused by different things. <br>I found, however, that in my case it was caused by the line that the Nginx devs suggest inserting into your php block from <br> <br> fastcgi_split_path_info ^(/wordpress)(/.*)$; <br> <br>Commenting this line out and restarting nginx solved the issue. It also solved a problem that was racking my brain where I would get an error: “You are not authorized to view this page.” while accessing certain Admin pages. The Nginx support page might be out of date. <br> <br>I’m a total noob on regex and nginx blocks so I don;t fully understand what it was supposed to do in the first place. <br>Hope this helps. <br>

@alex: Actually, try this first: - “Non-root try_files to URL redirect”. <br>If that doesn’t fix your problem, see my previous comment.

@alex: I suggest you take a look at, especially the “WordPress Multisite Subdirectory rules” section.
