Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I moved my magento store from Server "A" which was on Apache to Server "B" running NginX.

Copied all files and folders, Exported and Imported the SQL DB, Altered the local.xml file with the new DB Details and then ran a DB connection test script which all went fine.

Server "A" is http://hns.lwea.co.uk/ Server "B" is http://hotnstylish.co.uk/

When I navigate to the hotnstylish.co.uk address i get a "Default Magento themed" 404 error: Page Not Found.

Note: I had another magento installation on this nginx instance previously which worked fine :(

NginX Produces the following error logs:

Any clues would be greatly appreciated...

What is the purpose of this? location /. { return 404; } –  Guido Vaccarella Dec 3 '13 at 17:46

The reason it happens is because the default nginx config doesn't support the rewriting needed by Magento. In your nginx configuration file, make sure that you have the following specified under your server config.

location / {
  try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?q=$uri&$args;
}

Please add an actual explanation to your answer rather that just brain-dumping a small snippet of a configuration file. –  fukawi2 Dec 12 at 4:29

It's not an nginx problem.

When accessing the backend, a block notification of security is called.

Look at the class Mage_Adminhtml_Block_Notification_Security:

the "_canShowNotification" function calls another function "_isFileAccessible" which executes a POST to get the file "local.xml".

Here is your problem:

  location @handler { rewrite / /index.php; }

After the rewrite, you go back to location / and back through try_files again. Then it goes back to @handler and you're in an endless loop.

This appears to be totally redundant; just get rid of it and add it directly to try_files.

  try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php;
