Optimal Nginx configuration for PrestaShop 1.7

Optimal Nginx configuration for PrestaShop 1.7

Nginx & PrestaShop

Many of you want to run your e-commerce store on a high-performance server using Nginx.

However, today no official configuration has been shared by PrestaShop. This is why multiple different configurations are shared online, but most of them are not complete or suitable for every installation.

This is why we are sharing with you today our Nginx configuration template for PrestaShop. This template is doomed to evolve and if you want to have the latest version, go to our COO’s GitHub.

 

Configure a Nginx vHost for Prestashop 1.7

Here is the template that you can use, while modifying the following variables:

  • {domain}
  • {directory}
  • {admin-directory}

If you do not know, or are unable to integrate this configuration, contact us so that we could do it for you.
