VHost Configuration

If you're configuring your own VPS/webserver, the vhosts should point to the public directory.

These are only example configurations and may require some tweaking, depending on the software versions

Apache

If you're using Apache as your webserver, you can use a similiar vhost file.

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
ServerName yoursite.com
ServiceAlias www.yoursite.com
# Update these paths to the /public folder of phpVMS
DocumentRoot /path/to/phpvms/public
<Directory "/path/to/phpvms/public">
Options FollowSymLinks
ReWriteEngine On
</Directory>
# Example paths to log files
ErrorLog /var/log/http/phpvms/error.log
CustomLog /var/log/http/phpvms/access.log combined
</VirtualHost>

nginx

If you're setting up a VPS with nginx, you can use a similiar vhost configuration. This is the vhost I use on the demo site. This passes the PHP files to the FastCGI PHP handler, as well as enables the short, "friendly" URLS that Laravel requires.

server {
listen 80 default_server;
server_name phpvms.test;
access_log /var/log/nginx/access.log;
error_log /var/log/nginx/error.log;
# The vhost root should point to the /public directory of phpVMS
root /var/www/public;
index index.php index.html index.htm;
location / {
try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php$is_args$args;
}
location ~ \.php$ {
try_files $uri =404;
fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+\.php)(/.+)$;
fastcgi_pass 127.0.0.1:9000; # THIS DEPENDS ON YOUR SERVER AND MIGHT NEED TO CHANGE
fastcgi_index index.php;
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
include /etc/nginx/fastcgi_params;
}
location ~ /\.ht {
deny all;
}
}
