    Nginx 1.13.x
    MariaDB 5.5
    If you're rewriting to .html extension files so that PHP services .html files, you need to tell Nginx not to serve .html files (performance wise not ideal so generally best to not rewrite to using .html extensions for php files).

    But if you don't care for slower performance and need to use .html rewrites, then tell Nginx not to serve .html files by editing /usr/local/nginx/conf/staticfiles.conf (can use command short cut to access file = statfilesinc)

    and comment out this part for .html file location match with hash in front of the lines
    Code:
        #location ~* \.(html|htm|txt)$ {
            #add_header Pragma public;
            #add_header Cache-Control "public, must-revalidate, proxy-revalidate";
            #access_log off;
            #expires 1d;
            #break;
            #}
    then restart Nginx server
    Code:
    service nginx restart
    
    or use command shortcut
    Code:
    ngxrestart

    Yeah .html should be left to nginx serving. I'd redirect to friendly urls without any extension at all. Just look at this very forum's urls

    up to you whether to use .html, I personally never rewrite to .html extension files for performance reasons

    what's your full Nginx vhost domain.com.conf contents ? post in CODE tags

    why, because my number 1 priority is performance and speed so don't need PHP handling .html files.

    There's your problem similar to Nginx and vBulletin vBSEO

    Code:
        try_files $uri $uri/ /dbseo.php;
    should be

    Code:
       try_files $uri $uri/ /dbseo.php?$args;

    nginx rewrites generally left to end user as Centmin Mod is provided as is so best to ask DBSEO authors as well :)

    checking against vbseo version you might be missing this line though

    Code:
    location ~ /(.*\.php)$ {
    rewrite ^/(.*)$ /dbseo.php last;
    }
    
    but definitely check with DBSEO developers

    there's your problem you duplicated the php.conf include file which is Centmin Mod's default php settings for each Nginx vhost

    Code:
    include /usr/local/nginx/conf/php.conf;
    remove this part in /home/nginx/domains/forums.mashtyha.com/public/nginx.conf

    Code:
            location ~* \.(php)$
            {
                    fastcgi_index index.php;
                    fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock;
                    include /usr/local/nginx/conf/fastcgi_params;
                    fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_nam$
                    fastcgi_param   SCRIPT_NAME        $fastcgi_script_name;
                    fastcgi_param PATH_TRANSLATED $document_root$fastcgi_script_nam$

    FYI, you never have to set or add php location matches to Nginx vhosts via Centmin Mod as the php.conf include takes care of it

    Code:
    include /usr/local/nginx/conf/php.conf;
