403 Forbidden on nginx/1.4.6 (Ubuntu) - Laravel

I keep getting

403 Forbidden

enter image description here

My settings:



server {
listen 80;

root home/laravel-app/;

index index.php index.html index.htm;

server_name example.com;

location / {
try_files $uri $uri/ /index.html;

error_page 404 /404.html;

error_page 500 502 503 504 /50x.html;
location = /50x.html {
root /usr/share/nginx/www;

# pass the PHP scripts to FastCGI server listening on the php-fpm socket
location ~ \.php$ {
try_files $uri =404;
fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock;
fastcgi_index index.php;
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
include fastcgi_params;




I followed this instruction : here

Any hints/suggestions on this will be a huge help !


You need to specify an absolute path for your root directive. Nginx uses the directory set at compile time using the --prefix switch. By default this is /usr/local/nginx.

What this means is that your root, which is currently set to root home/laravel-app/ causes nginx to look for files at /usr/local/nginx/home/laravel-app/ which presumably isn't where your files are.

If you set your root directive to an absolute path such as /var/www/laravel-app/public/ nginx will find the files.

Similarly you'll note that I added /public/ to the path above. This is because Laravel stores it's index.php file there. If you were to just point at /laravel-app/ there's no index file and it'd give you a 403.
