Custom Web Service Configurations

Last updated 1 year ago

It is possible to apply custom changes to the nginx web server and php service where required.

It is important to follow this guide as the included configuration files for nginx and php are automatically replaced when upgrading the MediaCP.

Nginx Configuration

Direct changes to nginx configuration files outside of the conf.d file will be lost on upgrade.

After applying changes, you can reload the nginx service by running:

/usr/local/mediacp/nginx/sbin/nginx -s reload

HTTP Block

You can apply http level configurations by creating a new file with .http extension within the following path:

/usr/local/mediacp/nginx/conf.d/

Http Block Example

/usr/local/mediacp/nginx/conf.d/50_mychange.http

 server {
      server_name localhost;
      access_log /usr/local/mediacp/log/nginx/custom.log;
      listen 127.0.0.1:2025;
  }

SERVER Block

You can apply server {} level configurations by creating a new file with .conf extension within the following path:

/usr/local/mediacp/nginx/conf.d/

For example,

# nano /usr/local/mediacp/nginx/conf.d/50_mychange.conf

These changes are included in the nginx server {} block

Rewrite Rules

NGINX rewrite rules are used to change entire or a part of the URL requested by a client. The main motive for changing an URL is to inform the clients that the resources they are looking for have changed its location apart from controlling the flow of executing pages in NGINX.

You can place custom rewrite rules within a file at /usr/local/mediacp/nginx/conf.d/locations.custom

After applying rewrite rules, be sure to reload or restart the nginx service (instructions at top of page).

PHP.ini Configurations

Direct changes to php.ini configuration file will be lost on upgrade.

You should apply any custom php.ini configurations to the php.include file:

/usr/local/mediacp/php/php.d/custom.ini

After applying changes, you will need to restart the MediaCP PHP service:

mediacp restart php;

PHP-FPM Configurations

The default php-fpm configuration file is located in /usr/local/mediacp/php/etc/php-fpm.d/www.conf. This file is automatically generated on new installation and software upgrades. Direct changes to this file should be avoided. Custom changes can be applied directly to the following custom file instead:
/usr/local/mediacp/php/etc/php-fpm.d/www.include
After applying changes, you need to restart the MediaCP PHP service:
mediacp restart php;
