Support » Fixing WordPress » Apache -> Nginx Migration Permalinks broken

  • I’ve recently decided to move to nginx. So Here’s what i did. I had apache with working permalinks in this format: /%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%/

    I used ssh to dump mysql database, which i imported using myphpadmin on the new nginx installation. (the site works and is browsable using default permalink structure, but outside links lead to error 404.

    I then went to settings and changed permalinks to /%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%/ from the default, as i had in previus site.

    Now whenever I click on category it doesn’t work (error 404) unless i change back to default ( Even with the default I still lost all the outside links from google and other sites which lead to /%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%/ and now return 404.

    I’ve read many guides online, using nginx compatibility plugins, 302 redirect plugins, editing .htadcess file, still now luck

    Please help me. This is very frustrating.

    here’s my nginx.conf

    user www www;

    location ~ .*\.(gif|jpg|jpeg|png|bmp|swf)$
    expires 30d;

    access_log /home/wwwlogs/access.log access;
    include vhost/*.conf;

    thanks in advance

  • You should ask your host to check this out. Do they provide support on this matter?

    thanks for the reply but I rent the server (vps). So i have to fix this manually by myself, don’t have any support :/

    Go to the config file of your virtual host, usually located in /sites-available/ and edit your domain configuration file. In it, in the “server” brackets, add :

    location / {
    try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$args;

    Should do the trick.
