I'm using nginx 1.0.4 + php-fpm + wordpress on OpenVZ Container. my setup works fine. but when i try access to it give me 403 error and I access works fine. Error log :

2011/07/24 21:50:38 [error] 29939#0: *35 "/home/example/blog/public_html/wp-admin/index.php" is forbidden (13: Permission denied), client: 125.234.x.x, server:, request: "GET /wp-admin/ HTTP/1.1", host: ""

Below is my config:

    upstream example {
            server    unix:/dev/shm/example.sock;

    server {
            listen   80;
            root /home/example/blog/public_html;
            index index.php;
            access_log  /home/example/blog/logs/access.log;
            error_log /home/example/blog/logs/error.log;

            location ~ /\.ht {
             deny all;
            location = /favicon.ico {
                    log_not_found off;
                    access_log off;

            location = /robots.txt {
                    allow all;
                    log_not_found off;
                    access_log off;

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

            location ~ \.php$ {
            fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+\.php)(/.+)$;
            fastcgi_pass  example;
            include        fastcgi_params;

                log_not_found off;

I know this isn't an answer, but I find it curious why you are using sockets instead of proxy pass to, say – Aco Jul 24 '11 at 23:00
uninx socket or tcp is same error! – Mr.Hien Jul 25 '11 at 3:09
@Aco: Because sockets are generally faster than TCP as long as you don't need to proxy to other servers – pauska Jul 26 '11 at 8:58
@pauska Would you by any chance know if I could use sockets for memcached? Thanks for the feedback! :) – Aco Jul 26 '11 at 22:42
@Aco: Why would you want to use sockets with memcached? The whole point of using memcached is to share cache between servers, wich is not possible without TCP/IP – pauska Jul 27 '11 at 6:59

I solved by remove

 open_file_cache max=5000 inactive=20s;

from main nginx config file.
