Server Configuration

This section will go over a few basics of setting up your server for a Laravel application like PyroCMS.

NGINX Example

Below is an example NGINX configuration:

**Notice:** The web root should be set to your installation's **public** directory.
# --------------------------
#
# Redirect non-www > www
#
# --------------------------

server {
    listen      80;
    listen      443 ssl;
    server_name www.example.com;
    return 301 http://example.com$request_uri;
}

# --------------------------
#
# Redirect to HTTP > HTTPS
#
# --------------------------

#server {
#    listen      80;
#    server_name example.com www.example.com;
#    return      301 https://example.com$request_uri;
#}

server {
    listen      80;
    listen      443 ssl;
