[How To] Setup Hide My WP Ghost on Nginx Server

Please follow this tutorial step by step to set up the Hide My WP Ghost for Nginx server:

  1. In your WordPress dashboard, go to Hide My WP > Permalinks
  2. Select the Safe Mode,  scroll down and customize the paths as you like
  3. Click the Save button to save the changes.
  4. You will see a message to include the configuration file into nginx.conf file.

If your server is a Linux server, the main path to the nginx.conf file is /etc/nginx/nginx.conf (or /etc/nginx/conf/nginx.conf if you’re using Arch Linux). If the server is a Windows server your nginx.conf file will be located at C:/nginx/conf/nginx.conf)

If your nginx doesn’t have sites-enabled option activated (check for sites-enabled subdirectory in the same directory with nginx.conf file), you will find the server configuration in nginx.conf file like in the below example:

server {
        server_name [your domain name];
        root [path to the website root];
        index index.php;

        location / {
                try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$args;
