Configuration concrete5 with nginx

Preliminary configuration

I'm a huge fan of privilege separation. So let's begin with adding a user for our vhost.

adduser justasysadmin

Then we have to spawn fcgi processes. For it i use daemon tools from djb.

  1. Creation of a folder /etc/fcgi-sysadmin
  2. edition of run file:
    exec spawn-fcgi -n -a -p 1031 -C 4 -u justasysadmin -- /usr/bin/php-cgi -d session.save_path=/home/justasysadmin/html/sess
  3. Creation of a symlink for this folder /service daemontools' folder.
  4. netstat -lnt show us php-cgi listening on port 1031 of localhost

Don't forget to create dns entry for the vhost..

Nginx configuration


server {
listen [::]:80;
access_log /home/justasysadmin/html/logs/justasysadmin.access.log;
location / {
root /home/justasysadmin/html/www/;
index index.html index.htm index.php;
if (!-f $request_filename){
set $rule_0 1$rule_0;
if (!-d $request_filename){
set $rule_0 2$rule_0;
if ($rule_0 = "21"){
rewrite ^/(.*)$ /index.php/$1 last;
#error_page 404 /404.html;

# redirect server error pages to the static page /50x.html
error_page 500 502 503 504 /50x.html;
location = /50x.html {
root /var/www/nginx-default;
location ~ \.php($|/) {
set $script $uri;
set $path_info "";
if ($uri ~ "^(.+\.php)(/.+)") {
set $script $1;
set $path_info $2;
fastcgi_index index.php;
include fastcgi_params;
fastcgi_param URI $uri;

fastcgi_param SCRIPT_NAME $script;
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME /home/justasysadmin/html/www$script;

location ~ /\.ht {
deny all;


Et voilà! Free with this support of short urls.

It's now time to hang out with pals in a bar.
