[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 > Change Paths
  2. Select the Safe Mode or Ghost Mode,  scroll down and customize the paths as you like
  1. Click the Save button to save the changes.
  2. 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;
        }

}
