How To Config Domain Subdirectory To Point To A Subfolder

NGINX: How to config domain subdirectory to point to a subfolder

Oct 3, 2020 – 2 min read

Description

Let’s say your website (e.g. mywebsite.com) is installed in the following directory on your server /var/www/mywebsite and you’d like to install a WordPress blog that can be accessed through the following URL mywebsite.com/blog.

You’ll have to configure NGINX to redirect users requests to a particular directory depending on the requested domain subfolder which in your case is mywebsite.com/blog.

There are two ways to do that.

The subfolder isn’t inside your main folder

The directory structure is the following.

Open your NGINX config file which should be located in /etc/nginx/sites-available/mywebsite and the following code (change it according to your needs).

Check for errors and reload the NGING configurations.
