To set up a CodeIgniter project with Nginx, you can follow these steps:

  1. Install Nginx on your server if it is not already installed.
  2. Create a new server block configuration file in the Nginx "sites-available" directory. For example, you can create a file called "myproject" with the following command: sudo nano /etc/nginx/sites-available/myproject
  3. Add the following configuration to the file, replacing example.com with your actual domain name and /var/www/html/myproject with the path to your project's directory: server { listen 80; server_name example.com; root /var/www/html/myproject; index index.php index.html; location / { try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php; } location ~ .php$ { include snippets/fastcgi-php.conf; fastcgi_pass unix:/run/php/php7.4-fpm.sock; # Change this depending on your PHP version and configuration } }
  4. Save and exit the file.
  5. Create a symbolic link to enable the server block configuration: sudo ln -s /etc/nginx/sites-available/myproject /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/
  6. Test the Nginx configuration for syntax errors: sudo nginx -t If there are no errors, proceed to the next step. Otherwise, fix any syntax errors in your configuration file.
  7. Restart Nginx to apply the changes: sudo systemctl restart nginx
  8. In your CodeIgniter project's directory, make sure the index.php file is set as the entry point in your application/config/config.php file: $config['index_page'] = 'index.php'; Also, ensure your database configuration is properly set in application/config/database.php if you are using a database.
  9. Your CodeIgniter project should now be accessible through your domain name or server's IP address.


Note: Make sure you have PHP and any necessary extensions installed and configured for Nginx to work properly with CodeIgniter. Additionally, you may need to adjust the file permissions and ownership for your project files and directories to work correctly with Nginx.
