    Hello,

    When I try to add the code to make friendly url work for xenforo I am unable to restart nginx.

    Here is the code added:

    Code:
    nginx: [emerg] "location" directive is not allowed here in /usr/local/nginx/conf/staticfiles.conf:1
    What can I do to fix this? Thank you.

    ok i think i fixed it now, I diddn't copy your edits properly :)

    Edit: I can restart fine now but I still get 404 when using friendly url, here is my config

    Code:
    # redirect from non-www to www
    # uncomment, save file and restart Nginx to enable
    #server {
    #            listen   80;
    #            server_name mydomain.com;
    #            return 301 $scheme://www.mydomain.com$request_uri;
    #       }
    
    server {
      server_name mydomain.com www.mydomain.com;
    
    # ngx_pagespeed & ngx_pagespeed handler
    #include /usr/local/nginx/conf/pagespeed.conf;
    #include /usr/local/nginx/conf/pagespeedhandler.conf;
    #include /usr/local/nginx/conf/pagespeedstatslog.conf;
    
      # limit_conn limit_per_ip 16;
      # ssi  on;
    
      access_log /home/nginx/domains/mydomain.com/log/access.log combined buffer=32k;
      error_log /home/nginx/domains/mydomain.com/log/error.log;
    
      root /home/nginx/domains/mydomain.com/public;
    
            location /forum/ {
                index index.php index.html index.htm;
                try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$uri&$args;    
            }
    
            location /forum/internal_data/ {
            internal;
            allow 127.0.0.1;
            deny all;
            }
    
            location /forum/library/ {
            internal;
            allow 127.0.0.1;
            deny all;
            }
    
      include /usr/local/nginx/conf/staticfiles.conf;
      include /usr/local/nginx/conf/php.conf;
      include /usr/local/nginx/conf/drop.conf;
      #include /usr/local/nginx/conf/errorpage.conf;
    }
    
    # block common exploits, sql injections etc
    #include /usr/local/nginx/conf/block.conf;
    
      # Enables directory listings when index file not found
      #autoindex  on;
    
      # Shows file listing times as local time
      #autoindex_localtime on;
    
      # Enable for vBulletin usage WITHOUT vbSEO installed
      #try_files        $uri $uri/ /index.php;

    for sub directories as per outline at Nginx Rewrites for Xenforo Friendly Urls need to add /forum/ in front of try_files index.php
    Code:
            location /forum/ {
                index index.php index.html index.htm;
                try_files $uri $uri/ /forum/index.php?$uri&$args;  
            }
