This is what I'm trying to achieve:
PHYSICAL PATH: /subfolder/index.html
URL TYPED BY USER: site.com/subfolder
OUTPUT: whatever the contents of /subfolder/index.html are.
I read that this should work automatically, but evidently it doesn't work on Nginx. (I've tested it on Apache, and it works there automatically.)
What is the best way to replicate this behaviour? Do I need to use rewrites, or can I make a simple change in a configuration file?
EDIT: Here is a link to a copy of my configuration file. I know that it has index mentioned twice, and that the try_files section is a bit weird. Both those things came from my experimentation with different settings.
