Hey @Friendica Support,
Just wanted to share my #nginx configuration for #friendica with you guys.
I noticed most of the existing configurations that are floating on the web for #nginx do not deny access to local files. Most of them use the following construct.
location / {
try_files $uri $uri/ index.php?q=$request_uri
}
This serves files like images statically, but also gives everyone access to the source code of your ~friendica ~friendica installation (tpl templates, sql files, etc). One should deny all locations except for images, javascript and css files. Setting these deny rules is tedious and needs maintenance when new directories are added.
It's easier to route everything through the front controller except those known file types.
Below is my configuration. First I forward non-SSL traffic to SSL.

# You want all friendica traffic to be https
# You have an SSL certificate and key for your subdomain

Next is the SSL server part.

That's it.
#nginx #friendica @Friendica Support
I found one bug after posting when I noticed 404's coming in for certain image files. Avatars need a fallback to go through the front controller.
# statically serve these file types when possible
# otherwise fall back to front controller
# allow browser to cache them
# added .htm for advanced source code editor library
