WordPress nGinx configurations

Once you setup a wordpress site using nginx, you need to add certain rules to the nginx.confi file for your domain in sites-available/ directory.

WordPress nGinx configuration rules

First rule to add is a location block as follow:

    location / { 
        index index.php index.html index.htm; 
        try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php$is_args$args;
    }

Restart nGinx server

Make sure that you restart the nginx server after making changes to any nginx.conf file.

You can restart the nginx service by using this command:

service nginx restart

If your configurations are fine, then it will restart nginx without any error. However if there is any error in any conf file, then it will give an error and will not restart the server to avoid any disruption in service.
