NGINX rewrite rules for WordPress multisite
Posted by Sugen S. on 27 July 2018 05:52 PM

In order to deploy WordPress multisite, the following directives should be added to Domains > example.com > Apache & nginx Settings > Additional nginx directives:

# WordPress multisite subdirectory rules. 
index index.php; 

# This order might seem weird - this is attempted to match last if rules below fail. 
# http://wiki.nginx.org/HttpCoreModule 
try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$args; 

# Add trailing slash to */wp-admin requests. 
rewrite /wp-admin$ $scheme://$host$uri/ permanent; 

# Directives to send expires headers and turn off 404 error logging.

access_log off; log_not_found off; expires max; 
}

 

Note: These rules will work for most setups. If additional customisations are required, consider using htaccess to nginx extension to convert Apache rewrite rules to Nginx ones.
