Problem: nginx pointing to www directory not the laravel5-1.0 directory application type is laravel

laravel5 is the public directory for my application nginx and apache running on the same virtual host machine nginx port 80 apache2 8081

please help me to redirect my page access to laravel5-1.0 directory


try_files does just that, it checks for $uri if it doesn't find that, it will do an internal redirect to /index.php before the proxy_pass. So if you remove the line try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php;

It will reach the proxy_pass to http://localhost:8081/
