    AllowOverride All

Use the following code in server section. If you have installed TastyIgniter into a subdirectory, replace the first / in location directives with the directory TastyIgniter was installed under:

location / { try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$query_string; }

# Pass the PHP scripts to FastCGI server
location ~ ^/index.php {
    # Write your FPM configuration here


Getting Started

You can access the administrator panel from /admin with your username and password asked during the setup process. After you've logged in you'll be able to access the administration panel to configure your site.

Follow the getting started steps on the administration panel dashboard.

Getting help


  1. A 404 error page is displayed: This could be a result of the mod_rewrite module not being activated/installed or configured properly. Activate mod_rewrite for the Apache web-server. If it is already activated, check the root htaccess file in /.htaccess, to make sure the RewriteBase value is configured properly.
  2. A blank screen is displayed when opening the application: Check the file permissions are set correctly on the files and folders to 777.
  3. Setup successful but storefront links are not working: Check that the theme's required extensions are all installed.
