    I am trying to open the location of my index.php file for example:

    The root folder is:

    Code (markup):
    The the url a user will use to get to this root folder is:

    Code (markup):
    Every time I use this location declaration I get a 404 or forbidden message

    location /server/client/ {
              alias /path/to/my/root/folder;
              try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php$uri$is_args$args;
    Code (markup):
    I just cannot work out what I am doing wrong.

    Of course the index.php is located here:

    Code (markup):
    Just for clarification I have declared the following also:

     index index.html index.php;
        location ~ \.php$ {
              include conf.d/services/php7.conf;
    Code (markup):
    Like I said I just cannot work out what is wrong?

    If you want nginx to serve the index.php file only, you can try with the following configuration:

    location /server/client/ {
        alias /path/to/my/root/folder/index.php;
    Code (markup):
    If you are still getting an error message, check the error log for more details.
