NGINX, FURLS and speed optimisations


Recommended Posts

I've been trying to implement friendly URLs to my community website, and I've been following this guide: http://www.devcu.com/forums/topic/262-furl-friendly-urls-with-ipb-and-nginx/

However I really don't know what I'm doing (I didn't set this up, only inherited this system) and I'm hoping to get some help.

I want to achieve this:

Here is the config for NGINX for my subdomain http://community.pcgamingwiki.com: http://pastebin.com/HgiZSjY1

Any idea what I would need to do to change this?

The second question is how can I speed up IP Board? It seems to load slowly compared to my MediaWiki or old PHPBB3 forums.

I'm not sure about forcing / to become /page/index.html, when you set IPC as the default app it just redirects to /page/index.html

Edit: I think this is what you're looking for?

Thanks, I think we managed to clean up the NGINX config and removed those evil Ifs. The latest config is here: http://pastebin.com/AFgkM4Cp
We have also placed the
$path_to_ipb = './forums/';
inside this code inside index.php but this doesn't seem to make a difference.
Also the instructions for mod_rewrite seem to be for htacces rather than NGINX, is there a simple way to implement the same process for fixing these URLs?
Apologies in advance for my noobishness.
