        root         /usr/share/nginx/html;
        index index.html;

	location /petclinic/ {
                alias /usr/share/nginx/html/petclinic/dist/;
                try_files $uri$args $uri$args/ /petclinic/index.html;

  2. Run app in brouser: http://server_name/petclinic/

Deploy on Apache (for Apache CentOS installation):

  1. Build Angular application:

ng build --prod --base-href=/petclinic/ --deploy-url=/petclinic/

  1. Create sub-directory /petclinic in default Apache directory /var/www/html

  2. Go into Angular appication /dist sub-directory and copy all files and sub-dirs from it to /var/www/html/petclinic

  3. Edit Apache config (/etc/https/conf/httpd.conf):

sudo vi /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

Find the Directory /var/www/html> section and change the AllowOverride directive from None to All:

 . . .
  <Directory /var/www/html>
 . . .
 # AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed in .htaccess files.
 # It can be "All", "None", or any combination of the keywords:
 # Options FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
 AllowOverride All
 . . .
 . . .
  1. Save and exit the file and then restart Apache to apply the change:

sudo systemctl restart httpd

  1. Create a .htaccess file in the directory /var/www/html/petclinic

sudo vi /var/www/html/petclinic/.htaccess

Add the following line to the top of the file to activate the RewriteEngine, which instructs Apache to process any rules that follow:

RewriteEngine On  
# If an existing asset or directory is requested go to it as it is
RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}%{REQUEST_URI} -f [OR]  
RewriteRule ^ - [L]

# If the requested resource doesn't exist, use index.html
RewriteRule ^ index.html  
  1. Reload Apache:

sudo systemctl restart httpd

  1. Run app in browser: http://server_name/petclinic/
