Laravel and NGINX all routes not found

Posted 3 years ago by Filth

Im having trouble getting a project running on a new server... The home path works fine but any other route results in an NGINX 404 page. Im assuming it has something to do with the conf.

server {
    listen   80;

    #charset koi8-r;
    #access_log  /var/log/nginx/log/host.access.log  main;

    location / {
        root   /var/www/html/;
        index index.php index.html index.htm;

    #error_page  404              /404.html;

    # redirect server error pages to the static page /50x.html
    error_page   500 502 503 504  /50x.html;
    location = /50x.html {
        root   /usr/share/nginx/html;

    #proxy the PHP scripts to Apache listening on
    #location ~ \.php$ {
    #    proxy_pass;

    # pass the PHP scripts to FastCGI server listening on
    location ~ \.php$ {
        root           /var/www/html/;
        fastcgi_index  index.php;
        fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME /var/www/html/$fastcgi_script_name;
#   fastcgi_param  SCRIPT_FILENAME  $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
        include        fastcgi_params;

    # deny access to .htaccess files, if Apache's document root
    # concurs with nginx's one
    location ~ /\.ht {
       # deny  all;

I have tried a couple of things such as:

location @rewrite {
        rewrite ^/(.*)$ /index.php?_url=/$1;


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

Neither seem to have helped me.

And yes before someone comments I have a forge/digital ocean setup for most of my projects however that is not an option for this particular one. Any help greatly appreciated.
