Hello @mlmarinas,

Can you please share what your end goal is? I’m not entierly sure what you mean by the above question but I’ll give it a try to answer as best to my knowledge as possible.

When you mention environmental variables with Nginx, all I can think is about environments that are added in PHP-FPM. You can set the environment variable in /etc/php/php-fpm.d/www.conf like this:

env[APP_ENV] = development

Then you’ll be able to get it with getenv(‘APP_ENV’) anywhere on your PHP application, as long as you are using that php-fpm instnace.

Is that what you were after?
