Add SecuPress configurations on Nginx server
If your web host uses a Nginx server: the
nginx.conf file is not accessible to SecuPress.
When setting up some SecuPress modules and if the web server is running with Apache, the plugin automatically adds lines of code in a configuration file named ".htaccess" at the root of your site.
This file does not exist under Nginx, its " alternative " to add configurations is
Connect to your site via FTP and edit or create the
nginx.conf file to add the lines mentioned like below.
Example of displaying the entries given by SecuPress: Disable Directory Listing.
When you save a SecuPress module page, as long as the additions are not effective, you will accumulate, as a warning in the dashboard, the different lines of code to be added.
On O2switch the servers are under Nginx, but offers an Apache overlay that allows you to have a ".htaccess" : easier and more comfortable isn't it!
