Customization of the nginx config for MyWebApp (ConcreteCMS)

Hello everyone,

I have a question about the configuration of nginx. I need to make a customization for the software in my_webapp.

My YunoHost server

Hardware: VPS bought online
YunoHost version: (stable)
I have access to my server : Through SSH and through the webadmin
Are you in a special context or did you perform some particular tweaking on your YunoHost instance ? : NO
If yes, please explain: NO
If your request is related to an app, specify its name and version: my_webapp 1.0~ynh15

Description of my issue

I have installed ConcreteCMS (9.2.6) separately in my_webapp and would like to activate URL rewriting there. The ConcreteCMS dashboard tells me to add the following to the nginx config:

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

I have tried the changes in two places, but without success. On the one hand, this was in


and secondly in


In both cases, the entry seems to have no effect despite restarting nginx.

My my_webapp.conf looks like this:

#sub_path_only rewrite ^/$ // permanent;
location / {

    # Path to source
    alias /var/www/my_webapp/www/;

    # Default indexes and catch-all
    index index.html index.php;
    #try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$args;

    # Prevent useless logs
    location = /favicon.ico {
        log_not_found off;
        access_log off;

    location = /robots.txt {
        allow all;
        log_not_found off;
        access_log off;

    # Deny access to hidden files and directories
    location ~ ^/(.+/|)\.(?!well-known\/) {
        deny all;

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

    include conf.d/*.conf;

    # Include SSOWAT user panel.
    include conf.d/;

Maybe there is an error somewhere?
Does anyone have an idea?


Perhaps, have a look to


Thanks for the hint :slight_smile: But … hmmm … I’m not sure right now. My problem has nothing to do with the normal redirect to the YunoHost page … right?
