404 Error. Can't redirect static files


#1

Hi There,

I have vps with easy engine running. I am not able to redirect static files.

nginx should pass request to index.php file of wordpress, but its not.

We are getting 404 error for these file.

example.com/wp-content/theme/mytheme/css/style.css
example.com/istall.php 

for these two files we are getting 404 error message of nginx. I want these request should go to wordpress if not found on disk, instead nginx handle them. So I can redirect them from wordpress.

When I was using apache this was working. Not found files request was to wp. nginx not passing these request to wordpress.

Reviving a topic from the ashes. :smile:

Hi @makarand,

You could solve this issue?

I have a similar problem. I would like to redirect all traffic files that generate error 404 (Not found) or 403 error (Forbidden).

Note: Without analyzing the part of SEO.

For example:

example.com/not-existing-image.jpg -> example.com

example.com/2016/07/not-existing-image.png -> example.com

example.com/css-not-existing.css -> example.com

example.com/subdirectory/css-not-existing.css -> example.com

example.com/php-not-existing.php -> example.com

example.com/subdirectory/php-not-existing.php -> example.com

Redirect those errors to the home with HTTP 200 status.

And moderation if I was wrong to revive this post, can undo it. :wink:
