In this new post from Chris Hartjes today he continues his look at combining a CakePHP application with the Nginx web server. This time the focus is on the configuration of the web server side of things to make the CakePHP routing work.
I'm in the process of creating the website for my upcoming book *and* had recently switched back from using Apache to using Nginx again, so I thought it might be time to roll up my sleeves and figure out how to make it work in a subdirectory. After much gnashing of teeth and pissing and moaning, I figured it out.
A simple configuration example is included as a part of the post showing how to correctly configure the rewrite routes to catch everything and send it back to the index.php file. His is a two-part process: it tries to match anything with "/foo" in it then, if it wasn't caught there, it sends it off to be rerouted to the front controller.
