Notes

  • default.d is for FastCGI/uWSGI 2) and site-specific configurations 3)
  • conf.d is for server-wide configurations 4) and enabled websites

SELinux

  • Magic command to fix SELinux file context
  • Source: Reddit
sudo semanage fcontext -a -t 'httpd_sys_content_t' "/var/www(/.*)?" && sudo restorecon -R -v '/var/www' && sync

Remove Defaults

sudo mv -f '/etc/nginx/nginx.conf' '/etc/nginx/nginx.conf.backup'
sudo mv -f '/etc/nginx/conf.d/php-fpm.conf' '/etc/nginx/conf.d/php-fpm.conf.backup'
sudo mv -f '/etc/php-fpm.d/www.conf' '/etc/php-fpm.d/www.conf.backup'

SELinux

sudo setsebool -P 'httpd_can_network_connect' 'on'

Permissions

  • These folders are owned by the apache group by-default
  • This changes the ownership on the following folders to nginx
sudo chown -R 'nginx':'nginx' '/var/lib/php/session' '/var/lib/php/wsdlcache' '/var/lib/php/opcache'

HTTPS Redirect

  • This automatically redirects non-HTTPS site links to HTTPS
sudo -e '/etc/nginx/conf.d/http-redirect.conf'
server {
    listen 80 default_server;
    listen [::]:80 default_server;

    return 301 https://$host$request_uri;
}

Non-existent 404

  • This prevents unconfigured subdomains from loading assets from other sites 5)
sudo -e '/etc/nginx/conf.d/non-existent.conf'
server {
    listen '443' 'ssl' 'http2' default_server;
    server_name '_';

    return '404';
}
