Serve WordPress page at subdomain

  • Posted February 17, 2014

How can I configure the Nginx Virtual Host to serve www.mydomain.com/status (a WordPress page) when a visitor visits status.mydomain.com? Note: I do not want a rewrite (I want the visitor to see the subdomain url). Also, I would like to rewrite visits to the page (mydomain.com/status) to status.mydomain.com . I have searched for a long time trying to solve this, but have had no luck. Thanks!

My Comment might be late but really effective, i have developed a WordPress Plugin which does the job, i have used WordPress Re-write rule hooks to accomplish this, which make it light weight and doesn’t have any effect on server. all you need is WildCard Subdomain. Here is the link: https://webostock.com/market-item/wordpress-page-as-subdomain-pro/8860/

May be you have already find a solution, but this might help the other users. :)

To setup a domain or subdomain you do it the same way, here’s an example of a nginx block to serve a Wordpress site: <br> <br>http://wiki.nginx.org/Wordpress <br> <br>Just replace the server_name directive with your subdomain. <br> <br>For the redirection, in your main domain’s block add something like: <br> <br> <br>location /status { <br> return 301 $scheme://subdomain.domain.com$request_uri; <br>} <br> <br> <br>Contact me if you need any more help ;D <br> <br>http://johnqunknown.me/about/
