Guys… work fine but you have to use: try_files, not tryfiles… like code below

location / {
		# First attempt to serve request as file, then
		# as directory, then fall back to displaying a 404.
		try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?q=$uri&$args; 
		#try_files $uri $uri/ =404;
		# Uncomment to enable naxsi on this location
		# include /etc/nginx/naxsi.rules

Hi MARKOVIC.ANDRIJA, It’s seems like you did not configured your server configuration file in /etc/nginx/sites-available folder properly. Check that you have put try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?q=$uri&$args; instead of try_files $uri $uri/ =404; It will fixed your 404 error hopefully. Thank You M A Kashem CEO Xponent Info System (PVT.)

Alright, this answer more likely related to WordPress in subdirectory put this in your site configuration block

location ^~ /eng{
#alias /var/www/;
 root	   /var/www/;
 index index.php;
 try_files $uri $uri/ /eng/index.php$is_args$args; 

location ~ \.php$ { 
 root	   /var/www/;
 include fastcgi_params;
 fastcgi_buffers 256 4k;
 fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME  $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
 fastcgi_pass unix:/run/php-fpm/www.sock;

this will work with root directory but you need to remove eng (my subdirectory name) from the code above the magic thrick is this line

 try_files $uri $uri/ index.php$is_args$args;
