    We're using nginx web server.
    Do anyone know the rewrite rules for nginx web server?

    thanks

    You can find an example in /amember/.htaccess:
    # Sample Nginx rules configuration:
    # aMember rules (replace /amember to actual aMember Pro path from site root)
    #
    # location ~* ^/amember/.*\.(js|ico|gif|jpg|png|css|swf|csv)$ {}
    # location ~* ^/amember/setup/index.php$ { try_files not-existing-file @php; }
    # location ~* ^/amember/js.php { try_files not-exiting-file @php; }
    # location ~* ^/amember/index.php$ { try_files not-existing-file @php; }
    # location ~* ^/amember/public.php$ { try_files not-existing-file @php; }
    #
    # location ~* ^/amember/public { rewrite ^.*$ /amember/public.php; }
    # location ~* ^/amember/setup { rewrite ^.*$ /amember/setup/index.php; }
    # location ~* ^/amember { rewrite ^.*$ /amember/index.php; }
    #
    # you must already have something like that in your nginx configuration:
    #
    # location ~ \.php$ {
    # try_files not-existing-file @php;
    # }
    # location @php {
    # fastcgi_pass 127.0.0.1:9000;
    # include fastcgi_params;
    # }
    #
    # it is necessary to have @php section, as it is referred by aMember rules, and
    # it must be located at bottom
    #

    I'm having the same problem. Can somebody post a working nginx config file?

    Here's what I have now:
    Code:
    server {
            listen  xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:80;
            server_name test2.mysite.com;
            access_log    /var/log/nginx/access.log main;
            root    /home/mysite/public_html;
    
          location ~* ^/amember4/.*\.(js|ico|gif|jpg|png|css|swf|csv)$ {}
          location ~* ^/amember4/setup/index.php$ { try_files not-existing-file @php; }
          location ~* ^/amember4/js.php { try_files not-exiting-file @php; }
          location ~* ^/amember4/index.php$ { try_files not-existing-file @php; }
          location ~* ^/amember4/public.php$ { try_files not-existing-file @php; }
    
          location ~* ^/amember4/public { rewrite ^.*$ /amember4/public.php; }
          location ~* ^/amember4/setup { rewrite ^.*$ /amember4/setup/index.php; }
          location ~* ^/amember4 { rewrite ^.*$ /amember4/index.php; }
    
          location ~ \.php$ {
              try_files not-existing-file @php;
          }
    
          location @php {
              fastcgi_pass 127.0.0.1:9000;
            include fastcgi_params;
          }
    
    }
    
    I get 500 errors on /amember4/index.php . Here's clue from the nginx error log.
    Code:
    2012/02/02 12:27:55 [error] 28780#0: *50 open() "/home/mysite/public_html/application/default/views/public/img/top.png" failed (2: No such file or directory), client: 64.222.159.2, server: test2.mysite.com, request: "GET /application/default/views/public/img/top.png HTTP/1.1", host: "test2.mysite.com", referrer: "http://test2.mysite.com/amember4/setup"
    
    These errors show it is looking the document root rather than the /amember4/ directory where the files are uploaded.

    No. I never got it working.

    The errors weren't being logged on my test server. I haven't had time to go back and troubleshoot it myself yet.

    If anyone has a working nginx config, I'd love to see it.

    I tried the same rules on nginx, but I still receive "File not found.".
    I changed only the directory from "amember" to "members".


    Please help :/

    I fixed the issue by myself. I have forgot to change the fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME directory.

    Sorry!
