Error 404 on Wordpress nginx

Apache rewrite rules and Nginx rewrite rules are different

In apache, all you need to configure permalink using mod_rewrite module in .htaccess file. But in Nginx you’ll do in nginx.conf rewrite rules.

To avoid 404 error in wordpress, configure in your website /domain conf, change the block config location / {…..} to :

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

and reload the new configuration of nginx

service nginx reload

This tip works stably on my wordpress on VPS using vultr ( CentoS7 / Nginx / php 7.4 )

This post has referral link to my recommended VPS !!!
