I want to move a website from /var/www/WebSite to /media/Backed Websites/Website. I can't make nginx recognise the "Backed Website" directory. Tried with quotes, with the \,but no success. Any idea? Is this even possible?


It is possible. We can't use \, though. Single and double quotes are expected to work, especially on root directive. So, you could try single quotes.

BTW, which version of Nginx are you using?
