How Do I?  - 
 
I'm looking for help from Nginx users! I'm trying Craft in a subfolder on Nginx again. I have some success with the URL rewrites. But when I access the Craft control panel, the links to all the CSS and JavaScript under /app/resources are now giving 404's. After disabling "omitScriptNameInUrls", the CP looks fine.

For example:
With "omit" disabled: "domain.com/craft_dev/index.php?p=admin/resources/css/craft.css"

With "omit" enabled: "domain.com/craft_dev/admin/resources/css/craft.css"

Currently my virtualhost.conf file has this:

location /craft_dev/ {
   try_files &uri $uri/@craft;
}

location @craft{
   rewrite /craft_dev/(.*) /craft_dev/index.php?p=$1 last;
}

Please, does anyone know why the Resources folder is being ignored?

Hello all,

I have a test install of Craft running on Nginx, and I managed to install Craft in a subfolder. When I try to access "example.com/craftfolder/admin", for example, it takes me to a page that only has a copyright symbol and the year displayed. I can access the dashboard just fine by adding "index.php?p=admin", but I'd really like to have pretty urls and know how to configure them correctly.

In my nginx virtual host file, I've added some lines specifically for Craft:

location ^/craftfolder {
     index index.php;
     try_files $uri $uri/@craftrw;
}

location @craftrw{
     rewrite ^(.*) index.php?p=$1 last;
}

I can access the home page without "index.php", but "/admin" still won't work. Please, how can I correct my rewrite? :(

EA @ E3: Obvious use of cue cards is painfully obvious. PopCap co-founder just made a joke that no one laughed at, and he kinda had this side glance that screamed "ooookaaaaythatsuckedmovin'on!"

Ok, Brad helped me with my Nginx configuration issue. Now when I try to install Craft under a new Nginx server config, I get "Oops" with the progress ticker. This happens after inputting the site name, URL, and language and clicking finish. It took about one minute for the "oops" to pop up. I wait, but minutes later, it seems stuck on "oops". So I try to go to /admin, and it gives me the login page. I try logging in, but I see "Invalid username or password." I can see the home page okay. What could be causing my install to fail? :(

Tried install again. Only difference was I added table name prefix in db.php file 'craft'. Worked. Weird.

At this point, work is relaxing time for me. I get to put on headphones, listen to music, read a book, and do some mindless ticket work.

Because this totally won't turn people off from doing the right thing when they see an injustice happening.

Noob Tip (as opposed to pro tip?): The paper with the best surface for blending water-based markers (ie, Crayola [don't judge, people be cheap]) is.... tracing paper. Your mileage may vary (and maybe even watercolor paper works better), but tracing paper has a certain amount of resistance to all inks.

This "duh" moment came to me when I remembered a tip from Ron Lizorty (worked at STLCC as an illustration instructor) about blending Prismacolor and Copic markers on bristol board and card stock. Downside is that there will be slight buckling of the paper (it's pretty thin already), and the paper can still be damaged if the colors are blended too much. Mount the tracing paper with spray adhesive to bristol or card stock.

That would have been helpful during mass back in grade school. I would have looked stellar while not giving a fuck.

I got the Meatless Masterpiece, which was delicious. I came in during the lunch rush today, and was pleasantly surprised that the place wasn't crowed like the McD's in the same plaza (Not a knock on McD's, just saying they're very popular for lunch!). Anywho, the decor was nice, though I sat down at a table littered with crumbs (The person(s) sitting there may have *just* left the place, as such is lunch time. Dang, they must've *wrecked* those sandwiches, all the crumbs left over). The staff was very friendly, and I was informed to definitely come in during Thursdays when 6" sandwiches are $3. The menu had quite a number of selections, and seeing it was my first time there I got what stood out in my mind. The staff did help a bit though, so don't feel overwhelmed if it would be your first time coming in. Wait time for the sandwich was very little, and I was on my way back to work. So, I get back to my desk at work and try my sub. SHAZAM!!! The Meatless Masterpiece was still hot from being toasted (grilled??? I dunno), and I loved every bite of it. It tasted like how a pizza SHOULD taste, except no meat. It's a good thing I got a 12" sub, not sure the other half is going to survive sitting at my desk for much longer. I am definitely coming back here.
